Ark students hit the high note at our eighth annual Music Gala

Ark Music Gala 2016

This July saw 600 Ark students performing in the eighth annual Ark Music Gala at London’s Barbican Centre. The gala offers a glimpse into the wider world of musical activity taking place across our network of 34 schools.

The theme of this year's gala was 'A Night of Dreams'. Performances ranged from rousing renditions of well-known songs such as 'Feelin' Good' and David Bowie's 'Starman' to a classical Arabic song, 'Lama Bada Yatathana' accompanied by musicians from the pioneering chamber ensemble, Oxford Maqam.
