Industry professionals abound and their experience brings a cutting edge to both the teaching and performing. Students are given every chance to explore their creative talents and are constantly challenged to improve in this dynamic environment.
The Hurtwood Concert
This is one of the main events of the school year. The Hurtwood Concert is an immense high-octace mix of lights, projections, film, dance and top sounds. All types of music are represented from Classical to Jazz, Rock, and Pop, and recent years have also included Irish Folk, Opera and Traditional Chinese Music played on authentic instruments. This is your chance to perform with the support of a professional band supported by lights and sound designed and operated by rock prefessionals. The competition for concert slots is fierce but there are roles for everyone and many students say this is the most rewarding thing they do at Hurtwood.
There are regular informal, relaxed, lunchtime concerts for students to perform to the appreciative Hurtwood audience.
