Next Big Things?Posted on: May 16th 2017
A wealth of musical talent was on show at Amery Hill School this week, as five Year 9 bands performed to family and friends at the ‘Battle of the Bands’ event. The concert was the culmination of a year's work in partnership with Emma-Kate Bentley from the Triple T Academy based in Alton, who has been giving weekly mentoring to the eclectic mix of rock, pop and indie bands, helping each create their own distinctive sound. Mr Jules Gibson, Project Leader, thanked Emma-Kate on behalf of the band members and the school for her enthusiasm and guidance over the past year and added “The bands all intend to keep working together, with a next step for many to be writing their own material. This has been a thoroughly rewarding project for all involved, with some excellent final performances at the concert.” So, the names to look out for - Fire Door Shut, Only the Harmony, Amelia and Poppy, Dreams Don't Turn to Dust and IV.
Triple T is a vocal performance academy for boys and girls aged 9-18, based in Alton, visit the website below for more details.
