Christmas Greetings

MGA would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas, and a magical New Year!

We had a wonderful night on Thursday at the Usher Hall, with over 200 students from both Full-time and Junior Schools bringing in enough Christmas cheer to keep us fuelled through the holidays.

Professional standard performance opportunities are what The MGA Academy of Performing Arts is all about. Treating our students like professional performers means that by the time they graduate they are ready for anything.

Creating a production to showcase individual talents – those of our oldest students down to our youngest – whilst working with professional musical directors, choreographers and directors is one way we do this. And discovering the teamwork and team-spirit that only comes from such large-scale ensemble work is also a training opportunity in itself!

Putting our students onstage in front of an audience of around 2,000 people in one of Scotland’s most outstanding performance spaces is yet another way we ensure our students are best prepared for a job in the limelight.

AND by doing the entire thing for charity, supporting those young people not as fortunate as themselves, our students also keep their feet firmly on the ground throughout the whole process. If you weren’t able to make it on Thursday you could still contribute towards our Christmas Wish by making a Christmas donation to Barnardos Scotland now!

A Christmas Wish will be returning in 2017 for our sixth consecutive year… Bigger, brighter and with more seasonal goodwill than EVER before! See you there!
