MUSIC students from The Henley College raised £110.54 for charity by staging a free concert.

The youngsters, who are all sitting a BTEC in the subject, performed for almost two hours at The Victoria pub in Market Place, Henley.

The performers included soloists Georgia Michel and Dan Noble and jazz guitar duo Jasper Lynch and Teddy Chilton.


Natalie Fawcett sang with guitar accompaniment by Jordan Peedell while pianist Dominykas Motekaitis played for singer Cristiana Simoes.

Singer-songwriter and pianist Matt Maltese, who used to study at the college, also played a short set.

The final performance was by two-piece rock band Scuff, featuring guitarist Morgan Packman and drummer Kit Harris.

Jordan also compered while Cameron Ferguson, who helped organise the night, ran the sound desk.

The proceeds will be divided between Cancer Research UK and Oxfam's Nepalese earthquake appeal.

Jordan said: ?There was a great atmosphere and everyone enjoyed the music, including the pub regulars.?

Adam Stangroom, the students? tutor, said: "Although I gave the students advice, they were very much in charge of running it. Everything went smoothly without any hitches and I was extremely impressed.?
