This year’s Spring Concert took place on 3rd May and was held at St Mark’s church in Mansfield. The setting was perfect for the Academy’s musicians to perform to friends and family and members of the church’s congregation.
The Concert Band, Swing Band and Choir all performed pieces that they had been preparing since Christmas. We were really grateful to Mr Rob Deakin, our new brass teacher, who conducted the Concert Band after only two rehearsals. Soloists included Toby Govan, Rebecca Hardwick, Sam Barker, Emma Govan, Becky Birch, Alana Cranson and Amelia Betts. One member of the congregation was very impressed with what he had heard and expressed his gratitude that the Brunts Academy was helping to keep live music alive in Mansfield and at such a high standard.
Finally, we would like to thank Miss Fell, Mrs Wilson and Mr Oakton for their help in preparing the music, and to Mr Walker for his help setting up and taking photographs.
