Spring Concert

Posted by NJS - Friday 5 April 2019

The very best talent that the STRS Music department could offer performed in this year’s Spring Concert on 4th April 2019.


The large crowd were treated to a variety of different styles of music ranging from a solo on the piano of Agitato by Brahms, a duo who sang Worried About Ray by The Hoosiers, to the flute choir playing the Super Mario Theme tune.


It was superb to see so many Year 13 take part, in what is their final performance before they take their exams and move on to pastures new. We thank them and wish them all the best.
