Twycross at the Christmas Movies

 “A magical night out.” *****

 “So much talent on one stage!” *****

This Christmas, Twycross held its very own premiere and the stars were out in force on the red carpet! There was an array of talent to be seen and a fantastic evening was had by all. The evening was professionally hosted by a selection of students from Form 4 who kept us entertained throughout. We began with a selection of soloists followed by a festive overture performed by the orchestra. The Form 3 and 4 pupils sang a range of songs from the emotional to the energetic and I am sure you will all agree when I say how beautiful they sounded, how smart they looked and how many promising performers we have in those year groups. They even treated us to a little bit of tap! Mrs Griffiths did a wonderful job in co-ordinating this whole seamless performance. The Form 4s also did their own rendition of The Grinch with Thomas Blackwell doing an accurate portrayal of the grumpy creature who lives on the mountain. The Seniors also stepped up to plate with a performance from ‘Ensemble’ and solo recitals from Phoebe Tooth and Andrew MacCallum. Oh, and a big thank you to all of the audience members who raised the roof with their participation in the carols! A huge well done to all performers – you should be extremely proud of yourselves!

An incredible £900 was raised on the door for Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group so thank you all very much for your kind and generous support.

Ensemble on Tour

This year, ‘Ensemble’ (Twycross’ very own choir) was honoured to be invited to sing at Whitwick Methodist Church as part of Coalville Male Voice Choir’s annual Christmas concert. Having only formed in April, this was an exciting prospect for all of the children involved. 

They performed eight songs in total ranging from traditional Christmas carols to more recent popular Christmas songs and it is fair to say that they gave a stellar performance. For many this was the first time that they had performed in front of an audience who weren’t made up on Twycross parents but they fought through the nerves and did something to be proud of. 

Many of the members of Coalville choir were thrilled to see such an enthusiastic group of students and commented on how they hoped they would stick with it in the future. A massive thank you to them for having us as their guests for the evening! Half of the profits from the evening will be donated to our chosen charity for this year Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group. 

I cannot congratulate Ensemble enough on what they have achieved in such a short space of time and I look forward to coming back in January to some fresh songs. We might even get some tshirts…!
