Budding musicians take to stage for ten years of Chi Rocks

Chi Rocks

THE next generation of music stars have taken to the stage to showcase their talents at the University of Chichester’s annual school of rock.

Nearly one hundred budding musicians joined the Chi Rocks event, which aims to give the young students an insight into university life and encourage them to reach their full potential through music.

The three-day event, which is now in its tenth year, saw young vocalists and musicians from six schools throughout the region get an opportunity to gain new skills through songwriting and recording.

They also pitched ideas on how to market their record to a marketing pitch panel.

The students, all aged between 14 and 15-years-old, originate from The Academy Selsey, Felpham Community College, Bourne Community College, Warblington School, Miltoncross Academy, Park Community School, Shoreham Academy, Chichester High School for Boy.

As well as spending three days working with musicians, business advisors, and songwriters, the students produced records which were then be played at a live showcase concert.
