The newly formed Downside Function Band, comprising pupils and staff, aims to perform their arrangements of contemporary artists such as Stevie Wonder, Bruno Mars, Aretha Franklin and many more.

The Band were due to have their first ever rehearsal in the Summer term but now, due to these exceptional times, they have been learning the music from a distance and recording their individual parts to click tracks at home.

Their first track, Treasure by Bruno Mars, arranged by Head of Academic Music Mr Bridges, will hopefully bring some cheer and show we can still make music from afar; it just requires a little resilience!
