Big Band success at Music For Youth

Posted: 7th September 2017

We heard, early in the summer term, that the Big Band had been invited to participate in the finals of what is the largest music festival in the world.  We have been represented at this prestigious occasion by the Senior Orchestra, or by the Big Band, every year for over a decade.  The finals, held in the majestic setting of Birmingham’s magnificent town hall, were well-attended and the boys were privileged to hear some wonderful music performed by groups from across the United Kingdom.  Elevated to perform in the senior school and county jazz band section, it was our own Big Band’s performance, played from memory and without a conductor, which so impressed the adjudicators that it attracted among the most positive comments of the afternoon.  Special mention was made of the fact that our oldest performer was younger than that of any member of any other group.  Bravo to all the boys who gave up a day of their summer holiday in order to participate.
