Y7/Y8 Junior Musician’s Residential 2019
Junior Musicians Residential 2019
The Music Department is delighted to report on a fantastic Junior Residential that took place on 15 to 17 February in and around York.
Fifty one musicians from Year 7 and 8 travelled to the Racecourse Centre in York on Friday afternoon, spending time rehearsing, visiting the bowling alley at Clifton Moor, York’s Chocolate Story Museum and rounded off the weekend with an excellent concert on Sunday afternoon. Students also took part in mass on Saturday evening with Father David and Father Jim, performing John Rutter’s ‘The Lord Bless You and Keep You’ beautifully.
The concert, attended by around 150 parents and other family members at Manor Academy was a huge success and saw students performing as part of Junior Band, Junior Choir, Guitar Group and a massed choir of all students. Eight students also performed solos and blew the audience away with their musicianship.
The students were a credit to St. John Fisher and worked extremely hard all weekend. Roll on February 2020!
