On Saturday 1 April 2017, Homelands Free Church in Frinton on Sea, was again the venue for an Academy concert . A large appreciative audience was entertained by the Beginners Band during the first half, playing music ranging from the theme to ‘Batman’, pop hits with ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’, ‘Tragedy’ and ending with a rendition of ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ joined by an enthusiastic flag waving audience. Congratulations to soloists Ella Mark (cornet), Lillybet Fontain (tenor horn) and George Scutcher (drum kit).
The A120 ensemble provided music for the second half, interspersed with a great solos by Saffina Frazer-Brown (trombone) a Duet from Edward Frazer-Brown and Bob Bales (tuba) and a solo from Anthony Sanders on euphonium, showcasing student, student & teacher and teacher talent.
Thank you to Homelands Church for inviting us back, to the parents for the supply of delicious cakes, to Sylvia Brown for accompanying the soloists, to Shweta Singh for her IT skills with visual effects and the Academy Support Team all of whom worked behind the scenes to make the afternoon a fantastic event.
