Performance of Bach Mass in B Minor **Current**
19th May Durham Catherdral
JS Bach’s Mass in B Minor, completed in 1749, was one of his last compositions and is a firm favourite with choral societies in the UK and beyond. The Mass was never performed in its entirety during Bach’s lifetime and the first documented complete performance was not until 1859 in Leipzig. Since the 19th century it has been hailed as one of the greatest compositions in musical history.
Durham Choral Society, Soloists and Orchestra perform.

The Greenfield Gallery Opens Doors to Artists **Current**
Greenfield Arts are busy preparing for their popular 'Open Art Exhibition' which will run from Thursday 8th March to Wednesday 18th April 2018. The event gives the opportunity for emerging artists to display up to 3 pieces of work in a wonderful gallery space, an experience which often encourages artists to work towards their own exclusive exhibition.
The event is a truly 'open experience' and is open to applications from all art forms, the exhibition always provides a superb range of work in different media and a range of subjects. This year we are looking at 'The Power of the Pen' and how art can inspire creativity and passion in us all, this can encompass all art forms as they often derive from a written or drawn idea. The deadline for entries is Friday 2nd February 2018 and cost is only £10 per entry fee. There will also be a public preview of work on Wednesday 7th January and a celebration evening with craft fair on the closing evening on Wednesday 18th April from 6 pm - 8 pm, offering the chance to enjoy the final evening of the exhibition and have the opportunity to buy some very special crafts.
Greenfield Arts are also delighted to announce their next exhibition 'Travels Through Art' by Sonya Burn, a local self-taught artist who has explored different cultures through her passion for art.
The exhibition will run from Thursday 8th February - Wednesday 28th February 2018 and features a range of mediums including paper, ink and metal and some excellent acrylic work. Sonya will also be hosting a public preview of her work on Wednesday 7th February 6pm - 8pm, the event is open to all and will include works for sale .

Greenfield Really Has Got Talent **Current**
Students from Greenfield Community College once again provided first class entertainment for staff and students as they competed for the top places in the now infamous 'Greenfield's Got Talent' competition.
The hall was full to capacity as the audience enjoyed each and every performance with lots of laughs and applause for the variety of acts which included musicians, comedians, dancers and even an up-and-coming magician!
The judges were left with the difficult decision of deciding between the cream of Greenfield's performers but finally narrowed it down to the final 3 who had managed to 'nail it' on the day.
Third place went to Taylor Bowen who gave an excellent singing performance whilst 2nd place was a joint award as judges couldn't separate the two acts, it was picked up by a budding two piece band formed by Charlie Brown and John Jameson and talented Keiran Mullet who was impressive on bass guitar. Top act of the day however went to Paige Trimmer who gave a fabulous rendition of James Bay's Let it Go.
Staff at Greenfield were very proud of their confident students who bravely took to the stage. Two of the contestants even took it upon themselves to raise money for cancer research, raising over £100, in addition to their brilliant performance. The opportunities offered throughout the year both within school time and the many after school activities undoubtedly played a special part in supporting the talent on show.
It was also lovely to see such an appreciative audience with students and staff showing their appreciation in good spirit. Well done to all of the contestants who provided superb entertainment.
