West Hatch High School’s AS Band performed their second gig in as many weeks on Saturday 16th March when they appeared at Loughton Methodist Church as part of the Loughton Youth Music Festival.
Performing alongside students from Davenant, Trinity and Epping Forest College, in a programme containing music by Mozart, Sondheim and Rachmaninov, the band treated the audience to their take on two tracks by Marvin Gaye and Maroon 5.
West Hatch music teacher Mauro Sheehan said: “The school proudly supports this yearly event. This is the first time in its nine year history that a band has performed, and the students wowed the audience with their slick delivery. And, it was nice for me to get a night off accompanying duties!”
The event was attended by Krystyna Budzynska, the Associate Director of the junior department of the Royal Academy, who commended the band on their performance, and the school for continuing to provide performances of excellence.
