Disney dazzle concert

Y7s dazzle for family, friends and staff

At the beginning of term 50 of our wonderful Y7 students took part in the Disney Dazzle Concert.

It was a fantastic performance with lots of Disney favourites: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from Mary Poppin and Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid, which were sung by everyone. There were also songs from Frozen, Tangled, Moana, Aladdin and many more. The evening was presented by Elijah, Heath, Josh and Poppy and there were vocal solos from Daisy, Poppy, Faye, Erin and Ruby and piano solos by Maddie and Maisie as well as songs sung by individual form groups. All in all, a great evening of Disney Dazzle!  Please see below Afia's write-up of this wonderful evening.

The Preparations

Ever since September, Year Seven have been practising our singing voices, in our music lessons, and preparing for our Disney Dazzle Concert. As a whole, we were dedicated to learning the lyrics.  Each form had a song of their own, mine being ‘Friend Like Me’ from Aladdin, as well as two songs sung by the entire year.  These were a couple of Disney classics: ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ from Mary Poppins and ‘Under the Sea’ from The Little Mermaid.

The closer we got to the concert, the more excited we all were especially because auditions were held for soloists and duets to showcase their musical talents. We were all very eager to see if ourselves or our friends had been successful in their endeavours.

The Day of the Concert

The enthusiasm escalated when the day finally arrived. From 2pm all fifty performers gathered in the large dining hall. We were registered and grouped into our seats. For the rest of the afternoon, we rehearsed.  The comperes: Poppy; Elijah; Josh and Heath, familiarised themselves with the introductions, the soloists and duets rehearsed their pieces and the rest of us recited the songs and memorised our positions ready for the evening. The clock was ticking. This was the last time we were to practise before the big event but time flies by when you’re having fun…


The audience had started to fill the room and so did nerves for some of our performers.  Others, however, felt better than ever.  Before we knew it, we were sat in anticipation in front of approximately one hundred and fifty friends and family members; the lights dimmed and then… showtime.

From the professional lighting, vocal clarity and confidence of the overall performance, the night was an utter success- judging by the gallery’s faces they loved it just as much and we were left feeling very proud.
