Framlingham goes ‘all American’ for end of term celebrations

Wednesday 22 Mar 2017

As the Spring Term draws to an end, talented Framlingham College students brought the music and spoken word of America to life through ‘Americana’, a celebration of American culture and entertainment.

The show was an unrivalled success, with outstanding performances from every student who took to the stage. Not only did the evening showcase the huge wealth of talent that is clearly being nurtured at the school, it also shone a spotlight on the students’ mature and well-informed approach to performing. The journey through American culture took the audience from the high energy and wit of songs such as Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’ and ‘In constant sorrow’ through to a moving performance of ‘Strange Fruits’ by Jack Gionis who has recently been awarded a Composition Scholarship at the Royal College of Music and the talented Jemma Crossley. The students used extracts from ‘The Great Gatsby’ by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and ‘O, Captain, my captain’ by Walt Whitman amongst others, to underpin the themes of the evening.

Director of Music, Lucy Bloore said, “I am privileged to work with such hard working and committed students. Each one produced a performance that was both out of their comfort zone, and beyond their imagination.”

Framlingham College Headmaster, Paul Taylor added, “It truly was a wonderful show, with a refreshingly wide variety of music, poetry and prose. The sheer quality of many of the performances was breathtaking, and there was an atmosphere warmth and mutual support throughout the evening that reflected so much of what we value as a College”.
