Year 7 Big Band concert

It is a very exciting time for the Year 7 students at The Bicester School. Each class has been working very hard to learn two jazz songs during music lessons. Some are particularly difficult and students have been stretched to sing in harmony and to cover songs by legendary singers such a Frank Sinatra. So far they have risen to the challenge and the music rooms are alive with the sound of singing! This very exciting project will culminate in the annual Year 7 celebration concert. All Year 7 students will join forces to form a Year 7 choir, to front a professional big band. The backing music will be provided by the Grand Central Big Band, an extraordinary group of musicians who have been making a name themselves by playing high quality gigs and festivals. There will be other performers from other year groups as well, showcasing the wonderful musical talent that we have at The Bicester School, including the Bicester School band, and choirs.

This is a perfect opportunity for all Year 7’s to participate in their first whole school event as part of The Bicester School, and to experience some really high quality live music on a variety of instruments.

There are 2 extra rehearsal opportunities for Year 7 students: Wednesday 21st March 2:00-3:30 and the morning of Friday the 23rd

The concert is on Friday the 23rd March 7:00-8:00 in the lower school hall. There is no need for tickets but we will be accepting donations on the door, should you wish to give them. We would like as many friends and family as possible to come and support the students, and to share with us the musical talent for which we are very proud. It promises to be a fantastic night of entertainment and celebration.
