Congratulations to all the students involved with the numerous music performances last week. Our Autumn concert was a particular highlight, with the debut performances from the 2022 Junior Band Academy. This was our first full band concert in the newly refurbished PAC and it was a delight to welcome family and friends back to the comfort of an indoor concert, featuring our wonderful young musicians.

Eddie Rice Day was a huge success once again, with the senior band performing at the liturgy under the baton of Mr Collinson. Thank you to those boys who remembered their instruments and were organised to be in the right place at the right time. This is a timely reminder to please read the daily bulletin and musical notes each Friday for information on upcoming performances and rehearsals.

Edstock Battle of the Bands was a highlight of Eddie Rice Day, with “We Love Jazz” taking out the trophy for 2022. Despite the challenges of band members falling ill before the big day, all the bands performed well and made the occasion a truly entertaining experience.

We have a number of performances coming up so please remember to read musical notes on a Friday afternoon, check the bulletin and attend rehearsals regularly.
