Congratulations to all students who took part in the ‘BBC Ten Pieces’ concert over the Easter break. Mrs Whomersley described the event as ‘truly amazing - I don't think RLS has ever had so many students involved in the main roles in the orchestra or the massed choir. Sitting on the front row I felt extremely proud of them all. There was a standing ovation at the end from the whole audience - the Cathedral was full to bursting!’
One highlight of the show was Cam Hughes taking on a leading role in the ‘Jets’ song from West Side Story along with Jools Clarke and Josiah Batt. They did so well that Angela Renshaw, Vocal Strategy Lead from Cornwall County Choirs has invited them all to sing with the County Choir at the Royal Albert Hall in July! Students were also interviewed by Radio Cornwall.
Well done to the following: Anna Hatfield, Maddie Collins, Willow Burrows, Will Thomas, Chris Price, Josiah Batt, Jools Clarke, Cam Hughes, Grace Tripp, Lucy Blanks, Samson Samuel, Saskia Adie, Izzy Doughty, Katie Blackburn, Adam Delbridge-Smith, Laura Jacobs
