Exmouth musicians wow audience at charity concert

TALENTED musicians entertained a packed audience at Exmouth Community College’s annual charity concert.

An array of acts, ranging from solo performances through to small bands, provided those in attendance with an evening to remember at the event held last Tuesday, November 23.

It was the sixth annual concert, organised jointly by the college and Exmouth Raleigh Rotary.

Tony Alexander, principal of the school, welcomed everyone to the event which started off with a performance from the year seven choir who sang Raise My Voice.

This was followed by sax, brass and guitar ensembles. Poppy Woods then performed a GCSE composition.

The line-up also included performances from Show Stoppers, a junior band, taiko drummers, Sophie Borrie, Lauren Tucker and the senior swing band.

Dick Francis, president of Exmouth Raleigh Rotary, said: “Each year this concert goes from strength to strength, building on a brilliant recipe.

“Take a group of talented kids, provide them with the opportunity and encouragement and persuade them that making music is cool and that performing, no matter how small the part, is fantastic fun.

“This recipe has given audiences a feast of entertainment in past years.”

The annual charity concert helps raise money which is donated to a good cause.
