Saxophonics led by Yr 10 student Liz Kelly and ex BGS student Emily Overend,
Drumline led by our drum tutor Mark Lewalski, and a chamber group formed especially for the occasion all put on superb performances for the judges.
The groups performed with real intent with the Saxophonics being labelled as ‘professional’ by their judges and Drumline being told they really were ‘so entertaining’.
The chamber group played a piece composed and led by Phillippa Booth in Yr 12 and were told that their "articulation of dynamic changes were effortless and tempos were flowing and elegant."
The groups received written feedback from the judges which can be read here:
One judge said of Saxophonics,
and of the Bingley chamber group led by Phillipa Booth in Yr 12
We are extremely proud of all our performers especially the student led creativity displayed at the competition. We await to hear whether the groups have made it to the next round.We are very much looking foward to the BGS Young Musician of the Year which will be led by Liz Kelly in Yr 10 and Jessica Kelly in Yr 8, with support from other students from the Music department such as Anna Hart in Yr 9 who recently approached Blue Peter at a concert regarding music in schools. Our students never cease to amaze us with their commitment to these events and we are sure it will be a massive success.
