What’s going in Performing Arts

Reports from Mrs Mitchell and Mrs Clements

Preparations are underway for a Spring/Easter Concert. Choir rehearsals are taking place every Thursday lunchtime wihle our fabulous Staff Choir continues their wonderful warblings on Wednesdays. School band continues Mondays after school as well as Junior band Monday lunchtimes. And this term we also have a revival of our string group which is rehearsing Wednesday lunchtimes as well.

We are delighted that our entry to the Rockfest Battle of the Bands has been successful. Our band is called Little White Truth and they will be complemented this year with a  four piece brass section. Pupils are rehearsing hard and looking forward to this amazing opportunity to perform at the fabulous Motherwell Concert Hall venue. It takes place on the 20th February at 7pm at the Motherwell Concert Hall. Our Lady’s has been allocated sixty tickets which are currently on sale to senior pupils from the Performing Arts base for £5.

Pupils are busy rehearsing on a Tuesday and Thursday after school as well as an occasional lunchtime for the summer production of Copacabana. We are steadily working our way through combining Dance, Dialogue and Singing. The cast are now well gelled together and are thoroughly enjoying learning such vibrant, exciting music and dance routines. It is sure to be a huge success in June! This year we are also organising a logo competition for the show: The winning entry will be chosen to go on our show t-shirt. Entry forms are available from the show notice board in Performing Arts. All entries should be handed in to the Performing Arts base by Friday 21st of February.
