Music can save lives

October 5, 2015

Morning Four, the leading band to come out of Bangkok’s prestigious Rockademy music school, came to Bromsgrove this week, to headline the 1st, annual Polio Points Rock Concert.

With Shrewsbury’s Bobbi Kimble on guitar and vocals, ISB’s Riccardo Barletta on Bass, and Bromsgrove’s own Thomas Savage on drums, the band has performed across the country for the last year or so, including at Jimlai, Big Mountain, Music in the Park and our own Opening Ceremony for the BIST Performing Arts Centre.

This was their first full concert, and they amazed an audience of over 100 students, teachers and visitors with an hour’s set full of covers of songs from Muse to Blink 182, Green Day to Taylor Swift, an ‘unplugged’, acoustic segment, and even three of their own original tracks. The concert also showcased the fantastic sound and lighting facilities available within our state-of-the-art Performing Arts Centre, possibly one of the most professional school Arts venues in the country.

Congratulations to the students involved, and thanks to all the staff who made it possible, and to Rockademy, with whom we hope to collaborate widely in the future. With only two weeks left until Bromsgrove’s Got Talent, and with the school choir currently competing at the Bangkok Choir Festival at ISB, the standard of music at Bromsgrove has never been better!
