MUSICAL youngsters took to the stage for the Shipston Proms.

The Shipston High School Creative Arts Music Concert showcased the musical talents of pupils aged 11 to 16.

A brass group – including music teacher David Hunt – kicked the evening off, followed by the Year 10 GCSE music group whose trombonist Hector Banks even ventured into the crowd during his performance.

Recently formed band Feedback, who had their debut at the Shipston Proms Fame Contest, brought a different tone to the stage performing an Eminem song.

And winner of the contest’s solo category, Savannah Eden sung Back to Black and Your Heart is as Black as Night.

Headteacher Gavin Saunders said: “This was my first Music Summer Concert and I was very pleased with the very high standard of musicians from my pupils, and amazed due to their young ages.

“I would especially like to thank my head of music David Hunt on the planning and guidance of this well choreographed event along with the Parents of Shipston High for decorating the hall into a night club atmosphere as well as providing the refreshments.

“Finally, I would like to thank Shipston Proms Chair Tim Porter and the rest of his committee for all their tireless work.”

And the curtain will be brought down on the festival in the now traditional style with the free Last Night of the Proms concert in the town square tomorrow (July 2).
