Four bands, four professional musicians and a final concert - ACS Egham's Rock Weekend

Published Thursday 12th of March 2015 11:30:17 AM

Musicians and vocalists from ACS Egham Middle and High Schools recently created four brand new rock bands, each led by a professional musician, before performing in a final concert.

On day one, students were assigned to a band and a professional tutor based on musical preferences and ability. By lunchtime each band had determined which songs they would perform and the rest of the day was spent rehearsing.

On the final morning the bands performed sound checks before a concert in front of family and friends, each performing a variety of their favourite songs. The finale included performances by the professional rock musicians who tutored each band.

Kate Lanham and Sarah Lundal, parents who co-organised Rock Weekend, were impressed with the students who took part. Kate said: 'The weekend has proved a great success for the fifth year running. There was an amazing show of talent and the students always push themselves to try new songs and new arrangements.'
