Before the ‘Forever Friends’ Concert
On 15th March 2018 the Form 4 BTEC Music group will be hosting a charity concert in support of the inspirational charity Blue Cross. This charity helps both people and animals alike, providing home and healthcare for injured and abandoned pets all across the UK, and training service animals for terminally ill patients. We strongly believe that this incredible charity deserves our support, hence why we are hosting the ‘Forever Friends’ charity concert in their name.
In preparation for this evening (that we personally anticipate to be an ‘award winning’ night), our team has been working hard planning assemblies and ticket sales. After many thorough meetings we believe we have organised a night that will rival past concerts. Part of this complex but exciting planning period was filled with auditions for performers and musicians. All I can say is we were not prepared for the level of talent presented to us. The brilliant variety of musical pieces left our judges stunned and impressed, but scared of the decisions they had to make regarding the schedule, due to limited time space on the night. The standards of the performances bestowed upon us an extremely difficult selection period. However, after several intense meetings, we are confident to have assembled an exciting and beautiful range of performers who promise to make the evening a must-see event.
We anticipate that the ‘Forever Friends’ concert will not only prove to be a magnificent event, but a great way of relaxing before the upcoming examination period, that we all know can be a cause of stress for students – particularly those faced with the daunting GCSEs. This year, it’s a time where friends can come together to support their peers and enjoy a night of beautiful, exciting and moving music.
The concert will take place in the Theatre from 7:30pm – 9:30pm and is open to both students and parents.

BTEC Charity Concert
Saturday was one of the most awaited days of this term… Mainly for three things
1. The weather was predicted to be sunny all day long with a temperature of 27°
2. Saturday tests were coming to an end for the final term of the year.
3. The much awaited BTEC concert was coming up.
After a short but tiring term with the exams just around the corner everybody wanted to relax and clear their mind. What better way than going to the BTEC concert hosted by Form 4s. By paying £2, you could listen to some good music and also be content that you have donated this money toward Smile train Charity who help children around the world. Everybody was there on time with the audience including Form 4s, Form 3s and a few Form 5s. But the audience was mostly full of the 6.2s who wanted to relax and enjoy their last days at Concord.
The concert was hosted by Zhaslan and Kenneth who made the audience laugh and were enthusiastic and bubbly. The concert consisted of acts using just instruments, vocals and even a band. It started with Jacky (F3) who performed the piano version of Nocturne which put all our minds to the musical environment with the soothing music. Then, Brandy performed a single “Come back, Be Here”. This song got the whole audience listening and was so entertaining that most of the audience turned the torches on, on their phones and started waving them around (including me).
If I continue going on about this concert I think this would last about 5 pages… Cut it all into one word – this concert was FANTASTIC. Notable performances were Oleksandra (F3) who performed 3 pieces. Each pieces with its own style and each and every one was beautiful. But the act that got everyone on their feet clapping and waving was the final one, this was performed by the BTEC Form 4 class. They performed the song “Heal the World”. This song was brilliant because they had used a lot of singers, piano, guitar and the triangle. The act was so touching that suddenly I thought these guys would actually have been a good match for Michael Jackson. This stunning finale left the crowd speechless, and then they heard the bad news that the concert was over.
As we made our way out there was some good food being sold at a cheap price, again all the money going into charity. Everybody bought some food and walked out with a stomach full of Chloe’s “awsomazing” cupcakes and a relaxed mind.

8:00pm – 9:00pm
The Form 4 BTEC Level 2 music students are organising a Charity Concert in support of the Smile Train charity. This concert will portray the talents of the many skilled performers who are the college’s very own students. You will not only able be able to enjoy various musical performances, but also refreshment will also be sold throughout the evening in hope to raise more funds for the Smile Train charity. As highlighted in bold above, the concert will only be for an hour from 8:00pm – 9:00pm this Saturday evening. Despite the very important external exams that most Concord students are stressing about, we hope that you could see this event as some sort of a stress reliever. To all Concordians (including teachers), we highly encourage you to come join us for a fun-filled evening with a line-up of enjoyable music. Take a break from the books, and come join us for a relaxing evening.
