King's Oak Academy host Christmas concert

Posted by Lucinda Reid | December 19, 2017 | Events

Schools from South Gloucestershire put on a spectacular Christmas concert at the Colston Hall recently. This annual concert, hosted by King’s Oak Academy, included six of the academy’s partner primary schools Beacon Rise Primary, Courtney Primary, Cadbury Heath Primary, The Park Primary, Park Wall Primary and the Tynings Primary.

There were over 450 voices on stage from Years 3 to 13, which also included King’s Oak Academy students. The children performed a range of songs and other acts included steel bands, drum groups, rock bands, and soloists.  The aim of this event was to promote participation in making music and the idea that music can be fun for all ages. The audience also played their part in the ‘fun’ of the evening by singing along to their favourite tunes and Christmas songs.

The annual Colston Hall concert was produced and directed by Tim Warren, Team Leader of Performance & Participation, from King’s Oak Academy, who said: “This concert is part of the continuing work between our academy and our partner primaries which covers many areas of the curriculum. The students, pupils and staff really enjoyed the day and worked really well together, they put on a fantastic performance thoroughly enjoyed by the audience.”

This was also a charity fundraiser so a silver collection was made in aid of The Jessie May trust, the chosen charity of the music department.
