Peterborough Music Festival 2018
The A Cappella groups returned to the Key Theatre to defend their title in the 'Senior School' Choir class of the Peterborough Music Festival.
We were taking part in the festival for the fifth time and have been successful in winning on every occasion we have entered previously winning four out of four. In terms of individual group wins it stood at 2 for choir and 2 for A Cappella.
Both groups performed extremely well with confidence and panache receiving comments such as "A Joy to Watch!" and "An Energetic and Engaging Performance".
The result was A DRAW, joint winners were the School Choir and A Cappella groups jointly bringing the title back to KSCS.
The bonus though was that both groups were awarded an 'Outstanding' rating, something that is rarely given and something that we have not received in previous years showing the continuous improvements we have made as a group.
Particular well done to our soloists this year Steph Pullen and Sophie Hardy in "Tell Me It's Not True", Hollie Atkins in "How Far I'll Go" and Maddie Rickards, Sophie Cowell and Chloe Blake in "Stand By Me".
But this is a team game and to win this five years consecutively shows the commitment and hard work that goes into every one of our performances.
Students from Year 7-13 involved amongst the various groups plus parents and members of the community.
Aspect of SMSC
Reason for event
Provided our students with the opportunity to experience the wealth of performing arts that happens within the community and it also provided our students with a chance to see beyond performing within school and start to become more confident within the community and become more comfortable performing to a mix of audience members.
