A scene from Aladdin with dancers Abi Flowers (Year 11) and Georgia Soper (Year 11), and Jacob Stratford (Year 10) as the Genie.
A Christmas Concert packed with festive songs and musical theatre showcased the abilities of some of the hundreds of students at Cleethorpes Academy to an appreciative audience of parents, relatives, carers and friends.
More than 150 students at the Academy are currently taking additional music tuition lessons in a wide range of instruments. Studies have shown that music can improve a child's ability to think, learn, reason and create.
The concert opened with a spectacular 'Aladdin Medley' by Cleethorpes Academy Choir and Dancers, and ended with a rousing performance of 'Merry Christmas Everybody' by Cleethorpes Academy Band. In between, there were some beautiful solo performances, including Sophie Brett playing 'White Christmas' on the violin, and Max Osgothorpe with a trumpet solo of 'Away In A Manger.'
Every performance showed how enthusiastic and dedicated the students are to their music and was greeted with great applause from the audience.
Janice Hornby, Principal of the Academy, said: "We are very proud of our talented students and this is a lovely way for them to wish everyone a Merry Christmas."
