ORA’s got talent is arguably the highlight of the in College activities. The students studying at St Peter’s College have displayed tremendous efforts in the build up to the show, finding time wherever possible to rehearse their performances. The sounds of tinkling pianos and soft singing have been filtering up to Programme Director Bob Barnes’ office door throughout the week.
Students laid on over an hour and a half of performances collectively, with real diversity in the acts. Incredible sleight of hand was demonstrated by the budding magician as he executed his routine, captivating the audience, creating a very entertaining magical experience for all spectators. The young ballet dancer produced an expressive, dramatic and elaborate performance, wowing onlookers with grace and elegance. A brave stand-up comedian took to the stage, offering an amusing array of punchy one-liners and quips much to the audience’s amusement. An exceptionally well-rehearsed singing troop took to the stage, providing many people the opportunity to get up on stage and perform in near perfect harmony. A proud Greek boy showed off traditional Greek folk dancing, springing and leaping around the stage, providing a valuable opportunity for many people to witness it for the first time.
With so many impressive performances, Bob Barnes, alongside Junior Deans were unable to distinguish a clear winner, bringing the students closer after such a fantastic evening together.
After the success of last week’s mid-session party, the students are incredibly excited to host the ‘Wizard School’ themed graduation ball tomorrow night right here at St Peter’s College.
