The Music Department will be participating in the Portsmouth Schools’ Music Festival 2015.  There are various ways to get involved.

Secondary Choir

 

The Secondary School choir will perform on Tuesday 30th June 2015

 

The concert starts at 6.30pm and the choir will perform in the second half. The Secondary School choir rehearsal will be at 6.30pm on Monday 29th June, venue to be confirmed.  There will also be a technical rehearsal at the Guildhall on Tuesday 30th June from 1.00 – 2.00pm.  Students will return to school by 3.00pm. 

 

Any students from Years 7 – 9 are welcome to come and sing.   Rehearsals in school will be posted on the music notice board throughout the summer term.  Year 8 students should check to see that they are not involved in the 1st half of Year 8 camp week if they wish to participate. 

 

Tickets and merchandise can be ordered in advance through the Music Department, or via the PSMF website.  Tickets will also be available on the door at the Guildhall on Tuesday 30th June.    

 

PSMF Song Writing Project

We are fortunate to have been selected again for the Festival song writing project.  BTEC Music students will have the opportunity to work on two original songs in workshops with university students from the Brighton Institute of Modern Music.  They will perform in a showcase spot on one of the Festival nights (date tbc).

 

Sing at the Festival!

Auditions will be held for a solo singing spot on one of the Festival nights.  Details to follow. 

 

Backstage Roles and Volunteering

If your son/daughter is interested in technical roles such as sound or lighting or front of house there are many opportunities to get involved.  Please come and talk to Miss Hudson.
