Trinity Academy lights up the new Bristol Beacon

On Wednesday 4th February, Trinity Academy students entertained a nearly full auditorium in the newly furbished Bristol Beacon. Only the second school to perform in the Bristol Beacon Hall since it was refurbished, the school’s students put on a spectacle of music and dance performances. Over 300 students from the school participated in a range of performances from orchestras and choirs to dance pieces, rock bands and vocal solos. The night culminated in two massive numbers combining 2 orchestras and 4 choirs.

Trinity is a music and performing arts specialist school, offering all students the opportunity to develop their musical, dance and drama skills in specialist studios/performance spaces.  The evening showcased the extraordinary talent of Trinity students that is being nurtured in the school.  Whilst Trinity has its own 450 seater concert hall, performing at the Bristol Beacon provided an unique opportunity to perform to an even larger audience in the world class setting of the refurbished Beacon. Head of Music and Performing Arts, Naomi Charatan said, “It was an absolute privilege for our students to perform in such a world class space. The students rose to the occasion and the experience will have developed them as performers, musicians and dancers. It was also really valuable for our younger year groups to be able to watch performances from our more experienced students  in this amazing space”.

The evening also provided the opportunity for the Trinity community of families and supporters to come together and celebrate the success of its students.  Headteacher Eiron Bailey said, “the school is blessed to be surrounded by a large supportive community of families and community advocates.  The concert allowed us all to come together for the first time and celebrate the positive growth of this new school”.

The costs of rehearsing and performing at the Beacon were met by anonymous sponsors and the school is hugely grateful for this incredible opportunity for so many of its students.
