July 2014 – End of Year Concert at the Jersey Arts Centre


End of Year Concert at the Jersey Arts Centre

13th July 2014

The Jersey Arts Centre was truly ‘packed to the rafters’ for the academy’s End of Year Concert!  The concert featured a whole range of ages and instruments, and the focus this year was ‘Ensemble Music’, leading to a wide variety of duos, trios, quartets, quintets (see programme below).  The opening item featured various violin students of different ages performing together:

The concert moved through music for brass, flute, percussion (featuring a fun body-percussion perfomance by the VCP percussion ensemble ‘Twigz’), and one particularly funny performance was given by the Star Wars duo of Alex Robinson (as Luke Skywalker) and Charlie Morgan (as a slightly square R2D2!):

The Grande Finale of the concert featured a rousing performance of ‘Happy’ given by the Brass and Percussion Day ensemble.  Congratulations go to all the young performers in the concert for a great fun evening of music.
