Archbishop Beck Catholic College brought the curtain down on the Cedar Road site when we presented our annual summer concert, “Last Night of the Proms” This was the last event at the present College before we move to our new campus on Long Lane.
The Sports Hall came alive with flags of red, white and blue on Thursday 10th July. This was the 11th ”Last Night of the Proms” concert organised by Director of Music, Bruce Hicks.
The College Concert Band were on top form, playing at their best. They were joined by our Partner Primary School pupils, the award winning Chamber Choir, College Dance Ensemble and Training Band.
All the favourites of the “Last Night of the Proms” made up part of the concert as well as the usual combination of comedy, fun and fine music!
An appropriate and emotional finale was the “Lowering of the Flag Ceremony” when the College Flag was lowered for the last time, meanwhile, the College Band and Trumpeters sound the ” Evening Hymn and Last Post.” The College Piper Mr Ken Beamer and associates followed this with the performance of the, “Highland Cathedral and Auld Lang Syne” bringing the curtain down on an amazingly successful period of service by the College to the local community, and a celebration of yet another year of outstanding musical achievement at the College.
The evening was compered by Ellis and Michael who added their own style to the evening.
