Hans Price students produce musical extravaganza

Over 30 students from Years 7-11 at Hans Price Academy took part in a music concert in front of a sell-out audience. Included in this performance was a choir from Haywood Village Academy who opened the show with ‘Hold Back the River’ by James Bay.

The performances were taken from a wide style of musical genres that included classic rock, piano and violin duet, solo singers and show songs to name but a few!

Over 250 primary school students from local schools watched and were entertained at an afternoon matinee performance. Monies raised from the performances will go towards the annual college production, which this year will be the musical version of the Adams Family, this will be staged later in the summer.

Carlo Hooper, Teacher of Music and show director said, “Producing a concert like this is about giving the best opportunities for all students. My aim is to raise the profile of Music across the academy and also in our local primaries. In our academy students produce lunchtime performances and I actively encourage students to perform on stage wherever possible.”

Note to editors:

In 2019 the CLF will have existed for 10 years as a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). In the course of that time our federation has developed from a small Bristol-based secondary education partnership to an instinctively collaborative ambitious organisation of over 20 entities, serving the educational needs of 9,000 children and young people aged 3 to 19.

Our federation is sponsored by the University of the West of England and Rolls-Royce PLC. Our academies are based in three 3-19 clusters in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.

We employ around 1,600 people in a range of roles designed to help children to be successful in their lives. We also rely on the time and commitment of over 200 volunteer governors, who share our values and ambitions for our schools and our pupils.
