Wickersley Music festival

The ‘Epic’ Wickersley Music Festival – what a tour de force. Bringing together secondary and primary musicians in this event showed just how much musical talent is growing and flourishing in our schools. All pupils rose to the occasion giving a raft of outstanding performances to the 3 Judges and appreciative audience. As this event grows so will the need to have it over more nights to accommodate the sheer number of musicians wanting to perform​. A great evening, if a little long, was had by all.

Students from Clifton Community School who performed were as follows:

The Vail Expression did ‘Mardy Bum’
(Jaq Denton, Jack Dudhill, Matt Cooper, Ross Denton, Jan Karala – Y9/10 band)
Soul Band performed ‘Reach Out/Marvin Gaye’ – came 2nd in the Ensemble Class
(Salem Mafuta, Luke Poucher, Sunnah Hussain, James Cardie, Mat Orme, Josh Plant, Charlotte Caprani, Hussen Mulhem)
Emily Wilkinson in Y10 performed ‘Clown’ – came 2nd in the Senior Class
Salem Mafuta in Y11 performed ‘Trap Queen’
Jan Karala in Y10 performed his own guitar solo called ‘Fluorescent’ in the Open Class and won!
Well done to all!
