Musical Variety: Richard Meyrick and LZ7

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Wider Curriculum

On Friday 19 June two very different musical performances took place at Charleston Academy.

In the morning we were delighted to welcome renowned pianist Richard Meyrick to school. Richard performed a series of piano masterclasses for some of our Music Students. The students gained enormously by listening to and playing alongside Richard.

Later that day at lunchtime and then in the afternoon the school hosted a concert by LZ7. Manchester based LZ7 are a rap and dance band who use their music to deliver important messages to young people. The focus on Friday was on issues as wide ranging as alcohol and substance misuse, bullying, tolerance and respect. The band then performed at Ironworks on Friday evening.
