For three days in mid November, the Albert Hall and its audience were treated to a spectacular event. With no restriction on style or experience, 3,000 inspiring young musicians, singers and dancers from all over the country were brought together to showcase their talent. These gifted young people displayed a variety of different musical styles, ranging from Japanese Taiko Drumming, Rock, Orchestras, Jazz, Grime, Brass and a whole lot more.
In its 34th year, the School Proms concert is an incredibly ambitious project, presenting the next generation of performers with a great opportunity to showcase their creativity and enthusiasm. With the chance to perform at such a prestigious venue, many of the youngsters were left with a plethora of wonderful memories from this unique and an amazing experience. As one of the performers remarked: “The excitement on the children’s faces and pride and support of the parents watching their children perform was priceless.”
Not only do the School Proms celebrate the quality of music that is being performed, but the event is also helping to inspire young people to achieve their potential and ambitions. The organisation is playing a vital part in influencing the future direction of British music, by presenting the inspiring youngsters with the chance to be treated as professional musicians; an opportunity that was enthusiastically taken up by over forty groups.
Entry for the 2009 Season is now open. If you, your school or group would like the chance to perform then log onto www.mfy.org.uk for further details.
