Making wishes come true

On 21st of March, Concord students and staff members gathered in the theatre to witness – once again – the talent and creativity of their fellow schoolmates. The event everyone was looking forward to, was a charity concert, and was organised by the Form 4 BTEC Music group. This concert’s goal was to raise money for Make-a-Wish – “a charity which gives young children and teenagers with terminal illnesses a chance to make their dreams come true for a day.”

Let me emphasise once again the fact – how talented Concord students really are, with delivering to us such a high quality and professional show despite the upcoming season of exams and vast preparations for it. You could see how much heart and soul was put into these performances. From inspiring the audience with singing and dancing to wowing everybody’s minds with card tricks: there truly was no limitation to the imagination.

Personally, one of my favourite performances was Nico’s “Rhapsody in Blue”. Yes, you read it right. The full orchestra piece, Rhapsody in Blue, played just on one piano by this wonderful Concord student. Also, I really enjoyed “The Beauty and the Beast”, where both dancing and singing came together in one act, which really hit me as some might say, ‘right in the feels’.

This evening and event was a complete success (of course it wasn’t the first time), and I can’t wait to see what other acts my schoolmates come up with in the future. Whoever has not yet had a chance to attend any of Concord’s shows, I highly recommend that they come. Once you see everything with your eyes, I’m sure you will understand the spectacle I tried to describe with just a few words…
