Arena Academy’s Inaugural Open Mic Night
“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent”
Victor Hugo (1802 – 1855)
Arena Academy’s Performing Arts Faculty were recently delighted to host our very first Open Mic Night – an entirely student-led evening in which our talented students showcased some spectacular performances. Year 7s performing for the first time as solo artists complemented our more experienced artists throughout the school, bringing talent and enthusiasm to the service of our wider community.
From beginning to end, the event was a student-led endeavour, giving them the opportunity to understand at first-hand the work which goes into organising and executing a musical event. We would like to thank all performers for their participation, as well as our Year 10 students who pulled it all together – along with Mohammed, our opening poet; and Amina and Amber, our fantastic comperes. We are eagerly looking forward to our next Open Mic Night – on Friday 15th June 2018 at 3.30pm in Arena Central.
