Madrid Music Tour 2019

 Another successful Music Tour to Madrid concluded at the end of February half term! This year, 41 students and 5 staff members travelled by plane to the beautiful city of Madrid; followed by two drivers who transported the musical instruments and equipment.

The concert venues on this year’s tour varied again from Salzburg last year and enabled students to play to the homeless and vulnerable adults in St Anton Church, to 200+ students at a local school and finally to customers in a shopping mall. The students did the school and community proud. They worked incredibly hard and managed a very full itinerary visiting the Royal Palace, Prado Art Museum, Retiro Park and the Gran Via as well.

Everyone went with the common goal to play music, where new friendships were made, student confidence grew, and a great community of students with staff worked together to achieve great performances.

Mr Couper, Head of Music, said “It was an absolute pleasure to run another tour and let's look forward to our next potential tour in 2020! Thank you again to everyone who supported the students in making this tour possible”.
