A host of musicians from Rydal Penrhos performed at a special community event recently.

Head Girl Charlotte Owen led the band in a series of songs, with the gifted saxophone trio of Miles Poller, Ieuan Franssens and Sam Jones also on hand to thrill the crowds.

Sammy Sherrington, Luke Davies and special guest from Eirias High School Jasmine Leach were also be part of the group, with many taking time out from their exam preparations to take part.

There was also a special appearance from the Rydal Penrhos Community Choir, who sang a host of hits throughout the set including Ticket to Ride, Girl from Ipanema, Song of Demeter and Sakura.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “It was great to be part of another community event, and both the Jazz Band and Choir performed to a very high standard.

“I would like to thank all those who came along and especially to those that are currently in the middle of their revision ahead of their examinations.

“It is quite a stressful time for them and making the effort to come along and contribute is a testament to their selfless nature and dedication.”
