Sibford pupils past and present will be taking to the stage next weekend (28/29 March) to present a festival of musical excellence.
Ulysses Wells and Millie Sampson (who left the school in 2008) will be performing with their band In Zanadu, described by Dom Letts of Radio 6 Music as ‘The Libertines meets Amy Winehouse meets White Stripes’.
Also performing will be Sam Evans, who went from Sibford to study Musical Theatre at Leeds University; Michael Aris, who is currently studying Music at Bath Spa University; and Flossie Boyd, whose EP Burning Bright has been released on the digital music service, Spotify.
Joining them on stage will be a range of current pupils including the school’s two house bands, the choir plus some stunning performances from Year 13 students Emily Sloan, Tom Smith and George Purchon.
Sibford School music teacher, Matt Platt, said: “We have a rich and varied set of young people here at Sibford with some fantastic musical abilities. To be able to combine their talents in an event which also features the musical skills of past pupils who have gone on to do some great and wonderful things is really exciting.”
Sibford Rocks takes place at Sibford School, Sibford Ferris on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 March. Tickets cost £10 (£8 for concessions) and are available from the school or from on-line ticket agency Skiddle.com.
