Music Centre Concert Report

The end of term concert held at Goldington Academy was a resounding success and congratulations to all students who took part. The quality of music-making was very high indeed and it was pleasing to hear a few members of the audience humming along as the Massed Ensemble played ‘My Way’.

On the programme was 'Castle on the Hill' - Sheeran, 'Valerie' - The Zutons, 'Teddy Bears Picnic' - Bratton/Kennedy, 'You've Got a Friend in Me' - Newman and much more!

Here's to a the summer term and more fantastic performances from our students!
