A group of Year 9 and 10 RPA pupils participated in the Springboard Composition Course run by the Royal College of Music using the facilities at St Paul's School. Pupils attended four workshop sessions where they were taught to compose by some of the world's leading young musicians. The course started in January and the task was to compose their own piece with help and support from students and composers studying at the college. After two months of the busy Saturday workshops, the pieces were complete and sixteen out of the forty pieces were chosen to be performed live in front of parents and students. All four of the RPA students got through to the final which took place on Saturday the 11th of March 2017. The students went to the Royal College of Music in South Kensington to hear their pieces being performed by the Royal College musicians. In addition, Jasmine sang her song composition and Tom played the guitar as part of his. The concert took place in the Parry Rooms situated high in the roof space of the main College building with excellent views of the Royal Albert Hall. It was a great night and experience for all the students who were all very grateful for such an incredible opportunity. Congratulations to all of them: Amira C with "Luminescence", Jasmine I with, "How much I love you", Ellie C with,"The Chase" and Tom A with "Patience is a virtue".
