Students from The Rock Project Shrewsbury risked rain on Monday evening to perform in an open air gig for family & friends. It was the first time in 18 months that they had played in public & they were fantastic!
Lisa Wordley who runs Rock Project in Shrewsbury says that “it was a difficult event to arrange which meant a lot of health & safety planning so that we could ensure as much public & student safety as possible & comply with current covid protocols for event planners”
“The students were brilliant and the hard work they had put in during the sessions that we ran online during the lockdown and then in this last term when we went back to face to face teaching, really showed as they looked really confident and relaxed whilst performing.”
The students aged 7-18 & adults played songs from Blur, Republica & The Black Veil Brides
amongst many others.
Zoe Zoom Tutor & local Artist says “ It was so exciting to see both the kids & adults playing in front of an audience, they were so good, I’ve only just started gigging myself again & these are the sort of events that really lift you up.”
You can catch up with the performance again on their facebook page @therockprojectshrewsbury.
The Rock Project has over 70 schools across the UK & runs in Shrewsbury on Monday evenings from Bicton and is suitable for children & teens ages 7-18 and Adults in the “Encore” session they teach Guitar, Drums, Bass & Vocals and play as a band weekly.
