    St Mary’s Christmas Concert 2016

    After months of hard work and preparation by staff and students alike, the Christmas Concert was as brilliant as ever. With performances from students of all year groups performing a wide range of music, variety was certainly one of the most impressive parts of the show. From Green Day to Michael Bublé, Vaughan Williams to the Arctic Monkeys, the performances were each unique and amazing in their own way. St Mary’s is a fantastically talented school when it comes to music, and this shone through more than ever in the Christmas Concert.
