Rotherham students bring the sound of ELO to town

MUSIC students were engaging in “blue sky thinking” this week as they prepared for a busy spell of concerts.

Rotherham College’s series of live shows begins with Mr Blue Sky — The Very Best of Jeff Lynne’s ELO, which will be performed at Rotherham College's Higher Education Hub and Town Centre Studio Theatre on Wednesday and Thursday at 7pm.

The audience can expect hits from the iconic back catalogue of the Electric Light Orchestra and a few surprises in the form of songs that Jeff Lynne penned for other artists.

Both nights will be performed at the HE Hub by degree-level popular music performance and production students.

Next Tuesday, the same venue will host BTEC Level 3 music students for a performance of The Story of Motown. 

This will be the first live show of the academic year for the students, with songs from the iconic Detroit record label and will also include few forgotten classics.

The second Level 3 performance, Back to the 80s, will be next Thursday, December 7, at 7pm.
