Come and Listen to the Music!

Youngsters from Cleckheaton Music Centre playing at last year’s Listen to the Music!

Following last’s years sucessful Listen to the Music! programme, the Friends have got together with Kirklees Music School again to put on another series of concerts on the bandstand.  Young musicians from Kirklees Music Centres and local primary schools are all set to delight their audience with a varied programme including jazz, brass, soul and choral music. The 2014 programme starts on June 7 and runs through to July 5, with performances every Saturday from 2pm to 4pm.
Here’s the full programme:
June 7 – Kirklees Youth Jazz Orchestra and  Reinwood Infant School Choir
June 14 – Cleckheaton Music Centre Intermediate, Senior and Big Bands
June 21 – Huddersfield Music Centre Senior Band and St Joseph’s & Dalton Primary Schools Mixed Ensembles
June 28 – Colne Valley Music Centre Intermediate/Senior Band, Colne Valley Community Choir and  Kirklees Music School Soul Band
July 5 – Holme Valley Music Centre Intermediate Band, Moorlands Primary School Brass Group & Choir and Kirklees Youth Brass Band
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 – and a picnic too if you like!
We would like to thank the Community First Neighbourhood Matched Fund Programme, administered by the CDF for the Office of Civil Society, for their support for Listen to the Music!
