Smithdon concert Salutes Broadway celebrates music of stage and screen

Members of the public are invited to attend a free concert on Wednesday celebrating music from stage and screen.

Smithdon Salutes Broadway will take place at Hunstanton Town Hall on Wednesday 27th March at 6pm, with performances from around 50 talented, young musicians from Smithdon High School, who will pay tribute to a range of popular musicals

It will be the second time that Smithdon, which is part of the West Norfolk Academies Trust, has held a spring concert.

Those performing songs from stage, film and television will include the newly formed Smithdon Show Choir, along with the school’s Year 7 Band, who recently placed third in the WNAT Battle of the Bands competition – beating sixth formers from other WNAT member schools.

Highlights of the event will included the Show Choir performing ‘Six from Six’, a solo version of School of Rock’s ‘Stick it to the Man’, a trio dancing to ‘Flash Bang Wallop’, and the school choir’s rendition of ‘Waving through a Window’ from Dear Evan Hansen, as well as the Year 7 Band’s performance of ‘We Will Rock You’ from the Queen musical of the same name.

“Events like this are an important part of our school community, as we believe in the value of giving our students the opportunity to showcase their amazing talents,” added Miss Miller. “It helps to develop their confidence and give them amazing, life-long memories of their time at high school.”

Smithdon’s summer concert, also to be held in the Town Hall, will take place in July, and will be followed by the school’s annual musical, which this year will be Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
