Music For Youth 2014

Thursday saw the arrival of Wardle Academy’s Youth Band at the Festival.

They gave a fantastic performance of Sunset, the Last Post and I’ll Walk with God, all pieces on a World War I theme. This visibly moved the audience and the musical mentors who awarded them the Certificate of Achievement for Innovation.

Later in the day, the Wind Band played their fabulous programme well and they were awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Performance Practice.

The Festival has been a good musical experience for everybody, our Primary partners and our own students had a brilliant time in Birmingham. For some of them it was not the first time they had been there and it most certainly will not be the last. The hard work of both students and staff resulted in some fantastic music-making.
