A special 'well done' from our Performing Arts Team

Wednesday 17 January 2018

On the evening of Thursday 14th December, the Birmingham Ark Academies held their very own Birmingham Winter Concert at Ark Kings Academy. Students from Ark Boulton performed at the event joining the mass choir and providing performances through our dhol drummers. Our choir blew the audience away with their rendition of Coldplay's 'Fix You' (click here for a short clip), with three of our students bravely singing solos. The massed choir numbers of 'Bolingo' (a Nigerian song) and 'Brave' by Sarah Bareilles, wowed the audience, and our dhol drummers were praised highly by Ark Central and the Principal from Ark Kings Academy.

Performances from our partner Birmingham secondary and primary schools were also performed and moved many in the audience. A huge well done and shout out to the following students, we are extremely proud of you:
