Ridgeway Music Spring Showcase
Saturday 24th March, 7pm - Merlin Theatre
Congratulations to everyone who performed at our Spring Showcase at the Merlin Theatre. Over 60 musicians from eleven different schools joined together to perform a programme of music to celebrate our achievements this term. The massed band performed a diverse range of music including a medley from 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and 'Thankyou for Being a Friend'. The audience was also treated to a number of instrumental and vocal solos, as well as some smaller student led ensemble pieces. The evening concluded with a rousing performance of Sigrid's current chart hit 'Strangers', skilfully arranged by our Head of Service Andrew Corker to include all the showcase performers. The massed band and vocalists sounded amazing in the newly refurbished theatre! We look forward to returning to the Merlin Theatre soon!
The first rehearsal of the Merlin Showcase Band, and what a fantastic sound they made!
