This well loved annual concert is being held once again in the beautiful Wakefield Cathedral on Friday the 1st December at 7pm. It will feature four of Wakefield’s finest ensembles; Wakefield Youth Orchestra, Wakefield Youth Brass Band, Wakefield Youth Choir and Wakefield Youth Training Orchestra. We feel very proud that these groups feature and successfully bring together talented young musicians from many different schools and backgrounds across the district.
The evening will begin with the Training Orchestra performing works by Nyman, Mancini and Herold before moving on to the Brass Band playing some original compositions by Stephen Wood and Ronson & Mars. Wakefield Youth Choir will conclude the first half with a diverse selection of material from the popular to the more festive! In the second half, the Youth Orchestra’s programme takes up a theme of ‘Stage and Screen’ with works by Verdi, Gray, Greig, Kander & Ebb and Williams. With such a varied programme we know that this special evening will truly entertain with music that promises to suit all tastes!
Tickets are available priced $10/5 (concessions) from the Cathedral Shop or from our office at Manygates Music Centre.
