Wind and Strings Spectacular
On Friday May 13th, over 140 young musicians played together in a joint music service music centre concert at Bath Pavilion. All of the music centres took part, except Cantilena, and almost every group took part as an individual group, plus a massed item with similar groups finishing with a massed rendition of The Ride of the Valkyries.
Pre-concert music was provided by Flutes Galore and Incantation and the four centres involved were Keynsham Music Centre, Wednesday String Centre, Mendip Music Centre and BSYM Saturday Centre. Groups playing were wind bands, string ensembles, guitar ensembles and a double reed group, and music played ranged from Michael Jackson to Israeli folk songs to Vivaldi to tunes from musicals.
A big thank you goes to all the pupils involved, plus all the staff involved, either on the day, or for preparing for the concert beforehand.
