Young performers steal the spotlight in heartwarming Christmas concert

Family, friends and the wider Gordon’s community arrived at The Music Hall Aberdeen for an unforgettable celebration of music, performance, and the magic of Christmas. 

The annual Christmas concert featured a delightful mix of traditional carols and contemporary festive music performed by Junior and Senior pupils. 

Mrs Massie, Head of Creative Arts, added: “Last night was a triumph from start to finish! Over 400 pupils from P4 to S6 entertained the audience with a variety of festive musical pieces with a guest appearance on video from ‘Infant Glee’ (P2 and P3 choir). 

“The concert highlighted the variety of Music co-curricular groups on offer and showcased the huge amount of musical talent we have at RGC. Music is more than a hobby. It enhances learning, pupil wellbeing and like all of the arts, it brings people together, instils confidence and encourages creativity.  I am extremely proud of all the pupils and staff who made the concert such a success.

“Since the formation of our new Creative Arts department in August, staff have been busy co-ordinating a variety of opportunities and events across the three subject areas of Art, Drama and Music and we are just at the beginning of a very exciting chapter for creative arts here at Robert Gordon’s College.”
