Progress music and drama event - Thursday 7 July

Story added 4th Jul 2016

Join us for this year’s Music and Drama performance by our Progress students  - our students with learning disabilities.

The event take place on Thursday 7 July from 5.00-6.30 followed by a reception in the café.

This year we are delighted to present performances in partnership with the outstanding Baked Bean Theatre Company and the Royal Academy of Music’s Open Academy programme. James Wheildon, Artistic director of Baked Bean, and Jo Morrison have worked with our Act & Perform class to create a piece called #7days, a contemporary take on social media and the consequences for a woman called Juliet.

Percussion Orchestra have worked with students from the Royal Academy of Music to compose an avant garde piece called Come with us,  a musical journey in five contrasting parts, sometimes dark and unsettling, sometimes uplifting.

It promises to be a very special evening, we hope you can join us and support our students’ achievements.
