Congratulations to 17 year old JCSS student, Natalie Clark who has been offered a place on the Music course at The Royal College Of Music, London for September 2013!
Natalie has been having lessons with us for 5 years now and during that time has performed at many of our events, played the role of Nancy in Oliver! and most recently sung the new bond theme song 'Skyfall' with a full scale orchestra for the Stockport Grammar leavers concert.
We could not be prouder of her! Well done, Natalie!

On May 10th 2013, Kerrie Leyland hosted an evening of fun and frolics to raise £1400.00 for Oxfam! The night was a fantastic success with guest performers including singer Alan Burton, drag act Matthew Gratton aka 'Sugar' and Manchester based Lindy hop dancers!
The night raised £1095.22 and Kerrie is now well on her way to raising the full amount with only £304.78 to go! She is hoping to achieve this by walking 100km within a 30 hour time limit but needs YOUR HELP to reach her target of £1400.00!
There's no-one more determined than Kerrie so PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE sponsor her as she will see it through to the end!
You can donate to her cause by following the below link:
Give to a great cause today, your donation will make a massive difference to people's lives!!!

The production is taking place in Burnage (Near Didsbury) in April of this year. The performance dates are Thursday 11th and Friday 12th and the venue and host is St. Nicholas Church.
The first meeting/rehearsal is on Saturday February 16th where the cast can meet each other and we'll have the first big sing of the chorus numbers. After this, people will be required to learn lyrics and familiarise themselves with the show. Following a few rehearsals in the evenings in March, we have an intense two-week rehearsal period beginning 1st April (Monday) and ending with the Second Performance on the following Friday. During this time, there will be a collection of full and half day rehearsals to polish everything off and run the show sufficient times. Given the commitments of some cast in performance week (college, work etc.), the most important rehearsals will be confined to the evenings. There are many lead roles still available and many solo parts within the chorus to be distributed following informal auditions at one of the rehearsals.
To participate you need only be 16+ and have performance/singing experience.
