On Thursday 5th May, Clifton Community School played host to this year’s Battle of the Bands.
The evening saw seven bands and five soloists from across Clifton Community School, Wickersley School & Sports College and Oakwood High School compete in front of a packed audience and a judging panel made of Mrs Leng (CCS Headteacher), Mrs O’Brien (WPT CEO) and David Burgess (Head of Music at Rotherham College).
The competition was tough from the start but it was a joy to see students from all schools supporting each other.
The special guest band was For Next Week from Rotherham College, who absolutely blew us all away.
Clifton’s very own talented bassist, Alex Koroma, performed in the winning band, The Meteorites with some incredible musicians from Oakwood.
Congratulations to all musicians involved – it was wonderful to be able to present another opportunity for students to develop their skills and confidence as musicians.
A huge well done to the overall winning band, The Meteorites, and the winning soloist, Jaime, from Oakwood – outstanding performances all round.
