Spring has sprung

The students at St Margaret’s CE Academy rose to the occasion once again performing to a full house at their annual spring concert. Over 80 performers contributed to a thoroughly fabulous evening. The thrill and enjoyment of performing was evident from the numerous solo and ensemble items on the programme. The evening started with a magnificent introduction to the recently formed samba band led by Year 12 student Sam Valentine.

Other ensembles included the school brass band performing Misirlou and Kryptonite with Jimi Olaleye adding his rap vocals. The school recorder group performed two Renaissance pieces and Matthew Murphy sang and played bass guitar as part of a rock ensemble with Liam Doyle and Ben McLaughlin.

Saxophonist Matthew Garnett performed Bach only hours after hearing that he had passed his Grade 8 exam with merit. The newest addition to the evening was the recently formed staff choir who performed Africa by Toto.
