Christmas in the City
Wednesday 11th December 2019
Wow what an evening!
The area band children had the exciting opportunity of performing on stage alongside other musicians from various Nottingham schools. They were able to put all their hard work and practice into this exciting performance at the Royal Concert Hall. The children proudly showcased their guitar skills to a full audience, but in particular their adults who had come to watch them and they were absolutely brilliant!
The children were impeccably behaved and made Old Basford PROUD! They had such fun when they were on stage playing their guitars and really got into the swing of it. They soaked up the atmosphere and immersed themselves into everything that was on offer during the evening. They were seen nodding their heads, tapping their feet and hands to the beat, what a joy to see. Furthermore, got to hear one of the finalists from a school choir competition sing and they joined in with some well-known songs themselves.
A great night had by all!
Some kind words from Hanna Barrs from The Music Hubb
“The concert itself was a triumph - all of the choirs and ensembles made the stage their own and performed with a confidence beyond their years. It's impossible to pick out a highlight because the overall standard was so high: suffice it to say that feedback from the audience about every aspect of the concert has been extremely positive.”
Most of the pieces played during the concert were recorded, and we are going to include some of them in our Musical Advent Calendar please check out this link if you would like access to the songs that were sung and performed.
