Congratulations to the members of the Sponne Concert band, Brass band, Jazz Orchestra and String Orchestra who took part in the band tour to Paris at the end of last term. The groups gave three amazing concerts at Notre Dame, EuroDisney and Parc Montsouris. This was quite an experience being in Paris at the same time as the world cup, especially as one of the concerts took place shortly before the kick off of the final! In addition to the concerts, the students enjoyed a boat trip down the Seine, visit to Aquaboulevard, Musee d'Orsay and the Chateau de Versailles. It is amazing what you can pack into a short trip!
Sponne musicians have a busy term 2 ahead of them with multiple performances in and around Towcester leading up to Christmas. All the extracurricular music groups will be performing at the Christmas Concert on Tuesday 18th December. Tickets will go on sale, priced £7 via TUCASI after half term. So that all participating musicians have the opportunity to purchase tickets, two tickets per musician will be available to purchase until 26th November after which point they will be released for general sale. Book tickets early to avoid disappointment as this event is always sold out!
