This year’s concert is being held in Unity Hall on Friday the 27th November at 7pm. The evening will feature four of Wakefield’s finest ensembles; Wakefield Youth Orchestra, Outwood Music Centre Dixie Band, Wakefield Youth Choir, Wakefield Youth Training Orchestra and special guests ManyVoices Adult Community Choir. We feel very proud that these groups feature and successfully bring together talented young musicians from many different schools and backgrounds across the district.
Wakefield Youth Choir will be singing a diverse selection of material from popular to the more festive and the Outwood Area Music Centre Dixie Band will play some very well known melodies such as ‘Bill Bailey, Won’t you please come home?’ and Kenny Ball’s famous piece ’Midnight in Moscow’. In the second half, the Youth Orchestra’s programme takes up the theme of ‘A Night at the Opera’ with works by Bizet, Ponchielli, Wagner and Offenbach. The evening will again feature the Training Orchestra performing works by Beethoven, Ling and Perry. With such a varied programme we know that this special evening will truly entertain with music that promises to suit all tastes!
