Brass Group at Treefest

The SMRT Brass Group was invited to play at St Mary Redcliffe Church’s annual Treefest event, in aid of Changes Bristol, and St Mary Redcliffe Community Projects. Students from Y7 to Y13 entertained visitors with a variety of carols, and audience members commented that the music had really captured the Christmas spirit for them.

 

Thank you to Ben, Lucien, Manu, Benjamin, Matty, Hamish and Mr Stewart for their musical contribution to this event. You can hear an extract of their playing in the video below. If you are interested in learning a brass instrument, or are an existing brass player who would be interested in joining Brass Ensemble, please contact the Music Office for more details.

Ovid in the West Country Competition

Our wonderful Year 7 students have been taking part in a regional competition called 'Ovid in the West Country' run by Bristol University and UWE. This consisted of Year 7 students studying and interacting with Greek Myths in their library lessons. The students were asked to create something in response to the myths they had studied. We had some wonderful entries to the competition and the following four students were entered in the regional competition.

Jet Ward (the jug) - WINNER

Noah Green (the painting) - FINALIST

Olivia Babinka and Arianna Harris (the cake) - FINALIST

They will all receive certificates and Jet has won a special prize from the Universities which she will get this week.
