Zimmer Vs Williams Concert Trip

IMG 0505On Friday 6 October 2017, eighteen musical students made their way to The Royal Festival Hall, SouthBank Centre, London to watch a fantastic performance with The London Concert Orchestra playing all the very best film scores from two of the best composers of the 20th century. 

IMG 0502We heard music from Hans Zimmer, highlights including Pirates of the Caribbean, Inception and Gladiator and music from John Williams such as Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Superman and E.T.
The group had seats in the choir stalls, with excellent views of the orchestra from above, which meant we could see all of the conductor's direction first hand.

Unexpectedly, the conductor had themed outfits for each piece and added a lot of comedy to such a fantastic night.

Wicked Trip

wicked musical 250pxOn Wednesday 27 September, thirty lucky students travelled to London to take part in a musical workshop at Pineapple Studios and watch the Matinee performance of Wicked the musical.

We were incredibly lucky to have the assistant director of music (of the show), who took the students on a musical journey of how to sing short excerpts from ‘One Short Day’ and ‘What Is This Feeling’. The students learnt how to project their voice and how to add stage presence to their performance to create a convincing performance!

The matinee performance was excellent and it is likely we will be repeating the trip next year.

Dane Court Grammar School is a mixed selective secondary school, set on a spacious site in Broadstairs in the heart of Thanet. The school is a friendly and inspiring place in which our students learn and thrive.
Learning at Dane Court is an enjoyable and exciting experience. Students are encouraged to develop the skills to learn independently, to lead and work in groups and to research and present information effectively. Our modern classrooms, laboratories, workshops and creative spaces are stimulating places in which to learn.
We continue to work hard to improve teaching and learning and to provide a high quality education for our students. We are proud of our students’ examination achievements this year on the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and Career-related Programme, where the results were outstanding; the school’s best ever, in fact. Grades at GCSE, including the new English and Mathematics qualifications, were also excellent.
