CELC perform at The Belgrade Theatre

On Tuesday 6 July 2021 Coventry ELC was given the opportunity to perform at the Belgrade Theatre supported by Coventry Music services and in conjunction with Coventry’s City of Culture programme. CELC students from Wood End, Wyken and Hillfields wrote lyrics and composed music under the guidance of Dan Cippico, Joe Cook and Mark Patton. Their compositions were emotive and engaging and performed with great professionalism and confidence.

CELC students performed to an audience of CELC students, staff and parents/carers as well as Belgrade staff and City of Culture staff. The song lyrics performed were heartfelt and personal, with positive messages of personal development and hope for Coventry.  It was an exhilarating, moving and thought-provoking experience for all.  We are extremely proud of everyone involved.

Not only did the young people perform on stage; their creative visual art compositions were exhibited at the Belgrade theatre too. The reaction of the students was a sight to behold they were enthralled to see their artwork being exhibited with the knowledge that it would be seen by many of Coventry’s residents.

CELC would like to thank Nina Sharma (CELC’s Art Teacher who organised the performance), Kim Hackleman, Ayesha Jones, Flo Swann, Corey Campbell and all the Belgrade Theatre staff as well as Coventry Music Service for believing in our students and for seeing their true talent and ability. CELC looks forward to future collaborations with the Belgrade Theatre and Coventry Music Service.
