Ribble Valley Jazz Festival
Rising early on the sunny May bank holiday Monday; pupils, parents, governors and staff met at Holmes Mill in Clitheroe to set up for the QEGS Jazz Band's performance debut.
The programme opened with an energetic rendition of Cee-Lo Green's Forget You, followed by Tico Tico, (sung by Renia Memmory). Joseph Ashworth played the solo for Sax's with Attitude and Lucy Hargreaves provided a fantastic improvisation on the trombone during Soul Bossanova! Zak Bux and Kimlam Nyugen demonstrated their jazz knowledge and improvisatory skills with their version of Autumn Leaves and to close the set, Julie Mathew sang the final number with panache; Stevie Wonder's I Wish.
Many thanks to Trish Ferrarin for arranging the opportunity for our pupils, it was enjoyed by all, a great day!
