Classic Ibiza workshop afternoon
As the weekend of Greshfest draws ever closer, Stephen Hussey and his principal singer Gina Burrows from the Urban Soul Orchestra came to school on Saturday 21st May to work with orchestral players from the Prep and Senior School and players from other schools across the county. Gina spent the afternoon putting vocalists Ruby S, Tamsin S, Callum R and Nureyn M through their paces to learn the music to sing lead vocals. All these lucky pupils will perform with the USO in the first part of the Greshfest Classic Ibiza evening on Saturday 18th June.
As if this isn’t exciting enough, the Year 12 A Level Music cohort, consisting of 6 boys, have been working with Stephen over several weeks on their own arrangements, and these too will be performed on the night. What an extraordinary opportunity for our pupils to see their work move from page to stage and be performed by professional musicians and their friends.
