On Friday 3 November the Amey Theatre hosted a special charity concert put on by The Abingdon Bridge, a local charitable organisation that supports young people facing challenging circumstances.

As part of the concert, OA and professional musician and saxophonist Tom Richards (1999) performed some outstanding numbers with acclaimed jazz singer and pianist Joe Stilgoe and the School’s Big Band, including tutors Andy Townsend on trumpet and Simon Currie, who taught Tom during his time at Abingdon, on saxophone.

Big Band players Jake de Jongh and Hayden Ramm reported that the performance was nothing short of breathtaking and it was an honour to be on stage with these true virtuosos.
