School Music Groups/Ensembles Wanted for Hitchin Youth Music Festival
|Published: 7th March 2012 14:55|
Does your school have music groups/ensembles that would like to take part in a local music festival?
A few members of Hitchin Brass Band (with support from Hitchin's Community Development Officer) are looking to stage a festival of music in Hitchin on a weekend in November 2012. The festival is for instrumental or vocal ensembles with 4+ members, from the ages of 4 to 18 and aims to provide young people with an opportunity to showcase their talents, boost their confidence and gain experience in performing.
We already have two professional musicians lined up as adjudicators. Groups will be entered into a ‘class' based on the instrumentation of the group and the standard of playing and awards will be given in each class. We are looking for any type of music ensemble!
We need to gauge initial interest in this type of event before finalising our plans. If your school would be interested in entering any groups, we would appreciate hearing from you a.s.a.p. (please note, you will not be
committed to entering at this stage, this is simply to get a better idea of the numbers of entrants). Once you have registered your interest, we can add your contact details to our mailing list so that you can be the first
to hear about the festival as our plans unfold.
Similarly, if your school may be able to host such an event, please get in touch.
Please contact Dinah Birch to register your interest in our event and tell us the type of group you may like to enter:
