On Tuesday 2nd May, BTEC Music Performance students impressed their audience of family and friends with a spectacular end of year music showcase entitled ‘On Air’.

Bands and solo artists performed fantastic live sets, many featuring their own original songs, written during the course. The students also covered classics such as “Dancing in the Dark” by Bruce Springsteen and “Somebody to Love” by Queen. As well as the high energy sets on the main stage, there were also acoustic performances during the interval, whilst guests enjoyed refreshments.

This “On Air” concert was the second one that second year students had organised as part of their course, building upon the success of their first “On Air” concert at the Jubilee Centre in February.

Students were responsible for all aspects of the event organisation and management, from marketing to live sound.

The excellent performances impressed the full house audience, who sang their praises at the end of the evening, with one member of the audience summing up the evening perfectly “so many great performances, it was difficult to pick a favourite!”
