48 students from across the IWEF performed an hour’s set of music in basking heat on the Friday afternoon of the Rhythmtree Festival.
Ensembles from Carisbrooke College’s ‘School of Rock’ club performed hits by Oasis, The White Stripes, Vance Joy and various others. Carisbrooke College’s KS3 choir ‘Sing’ performed ‘Don’t worry be happy’ by Bobby McFerrin. Students from Medina College’s Years 10 and 11 also performed hits by UB40, The Beatles and Bob Marley, supported by Tilly Grimshaw from the Island VI Form.
The performances took place on the colourful ‘Carnevale’ stage and formed part of the IOW Music Hub’s lineup of local schools.
Our musical students have had a very busy term with many events and we are extremely proud of them and the effort and enthusiasm they have shown in preparing for these. It has been wonderful to see their performance skills and confidence growing more and more with each performance.
