Music For Youth Regional Rounds

Posted: 2nd February 2016

Congratulations to all who represented the school at one of the regional rounds of the National Music for Youth Festival yesterday. This is the largest festival of its kind in the world and the Prep takes part annually, with our groups enjoying national recognition over the years.

The Senior Orchestra and Big Band participated once again this year.  Upwards of 70 boys left the Prep and headed to the Clore Ballroom in the Festival Hall complex on the Southbank. 

The Orchestra was first to perform in the afternoon session and the large crowd of participants from other schools, their supporters, Prep parents and members of the public gave the Orchestra a warm ovation. 

The Big Band performed later in the session and had everyone in the Ballroom clapping along to their numbers. The feedback from the adjudicators was fulsome in its praise for both groups, whilst also offering some thoughts for future development.

As well as the experience of performing in this wonderful venue, it is also good for the boys at the Prep to hear such an eclectic mix of music from children ranging from infant schools to senior music academies.

Well done and thank you to everyone involved in this important event, including the music teachers and accompanying staff for their assistance and support.
