Music For Youth Proms 2017 - Royal Albert Hall
South Yorkshire Massed Jazz Ensemble
We are delighted to announce that Sheffield Music Hub has been successful in bidding, alongside other South Yorkshire Music Hubs, to provide one of the massed items for the Music For Youth Primary Proms in November 2017. This is an exciting and rare opportunity to come together and perform along with 700 young musicians and singers from across South Yorkshire to perform at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall, London.
To take part in this project, we need students (who are currently Y4-Y12) to commit to the following:
- Attend our weekly Intermediate Jazz Band which rehearses on a Thursday night, 6:15pm – 8pm, at Forge Valley School (unless you are already in Sheffield Youth Big Band)
- Attend the creative workshop day on Sunday 14 May at Oasis Don Valley School, Sheffield
- Attend a massed ensemble rehearsal on Sunday 10 September in Barnsley
- Attend a massed ensemble rehearsal on Sunday 15 October in Doncaster
- Attend the massed rehearsal day on Monday 6 November at Magna Science Adventure Centre, Rotherham. Please note this will be during the school day so you will need to request authorised absence.
- Attend the performance in London on Monday 13 November. Please note we are considering staying in London Sunday 12 – Tuesday 14 November so you will need to request 2 days authorised absence.
We expect the total cost for all transport and accommodation in London to be no more than £120.
We don’t want to exclude any child from this performance on financial grounds so if you think this is will be a problem, please contact us.
Applications are now closed for this event.
