We hosted the very first ‘Carew Live!’ event on Thursday 2nd February, where nearly thirty students took part in their first ever official gig. We were very lucky to host three incredible acts who wowed the student audience with their musical skill. Chloe Ray, a local singer song writer who works at Orchard Hill College, a blues band called the Stone Cold Fever and a Soul pop band called the ‘Carew Academy All stars’! The students very much enjoyed the evening, ‘The best night that we had’ according to Jack. ‘It made me want to dance on thin air!’ said Alex and ‘I enjoyed all of it, it was really awesome!’ were the words of Lewis.
We are very much looking forward to putting more shows on in the summer term and perhaps even a mini festival at the end of the school year. The ultimate aim is for the students play alongside the professional musicians and I have no doubt that they will achieve this soon!
