Live sessions returns to the stage bigger than ever

The College’s popular music showcase evening, ‘Live Sessions’, returned to the stage in the Daphne Collman Auditorium on Wednesday 4 March.

A little under one hundred students, from Years 7-13, took to the stage to perform a wide variety of musical styles and genres.

Year 13 performer, Kezia Bovey, said: ‘Live Sessions is something that people look forward to every year. It’s great to see the students of all ages who have an interest in music come together and perform. It being my last Live Sessions, I’ll miss being a part of this every year but look forward to coming back and watching the younger years!’

Team Leader of Music, Rob Wilkinson, said ‘These students never fail to amaze me with their talent, confidence and hard work. I’m so pleased that they get the opportunity to show off how talented they are to a packed audience of family, friends and members of College staff. It was an amazing evening and I’m incredibly proud of them all.’
