Talented young musicians have shown they mean business by creating their own Christmas CD.

Students at Corby Business Academy have performed on, produced and designed the CD, entitled Music Means Business, which goes on sale on Monday.

It includes performances by the academy’s senior concert band, senior choir, senior brass ensemble, CBA Vocalize and the junior concert band, as well as many soloists.

Academy director of music Clive Wears said: “The performances from our young musicians and singers are really outstanding.

“They should all be incredibly proud of themselves for what they have managed to achieve. It is a great CD and is the perfect present for any music lover this Christmas.”

The CD was recorded at the academy with the support of World of Sound and producer Adam Goldsmith.

It took more than five months to make and features a variety of popular tracks, including Stand By Me, You’ve Got the Love, Fields of Gold, Someone Like You, Ain’t No Mountain and Encanto.

The CD cover was designed by media students led by sixth formers Megan Hogg and Eleanor Jones.

It costs £5 and will be available at the academy’s main reception desk or by calling 01536 303120.
