Listen to the music!

Cleckheaton Music Centre Band

Enjoying the music in the sunshine!

Lots of people said they’d like to see more music in the park, so the Friends got together with Kirklees Music School to see what we could do. The result was Listen to the Music! –  a series of performances  on the bandstand by young musicians from local schools and the KMS Music Centres. The series started on June 8 and runs through to July 6, with performances every Saturday from 2pm to 4pm.
We’ve been lucky with the weather so far and visitors to the park have been treated to sparkling performances by local youngsters. Groups featured so far are Kirklees Music School’s Just4Strings, Moorlands Primary School Brass Group, bands from Cleckheaton Music Centre, and St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School Brass Players. Still to come are the Colne Valley Music Centre Community Choir and Kirklees Music School Oompah Band on June 29 and Huddersfield Saxophone Group plus a mixed ensemble from St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Rowley Lane J, I & N School and Dalton School on July 6.

The concerts are free – with a collection in aid of the Kirklees Music School Gift of Music Fund which supports talented youngsters whose families are unable to afford regular music tuition. No seating will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own fold up chairs or rugs.
We would like to thank the Community First Neighbourhood Matched Fund Programme for their support for Listen to the Music!
