West Sussex Music shines bright

Four groups from West Sussex Music took part in the Chichester Festival for Music, Dance, and Speech, recently, showcasing their talent. 

The aim of the Festival, held at venues across Chichester, is to give people, particularly the young, a platform to enjoy performing in public with a little competition thrown in, in a friendly festival environment. 

West Sussex Music’s Flute Choir and Urban Brass ensemble showcased their skills. Comprising five students and 14 students aged 14-18 respectively, these ensembles demonstrated the depth of talent and dedication that comes from the young musicians. 

Two of WSM’s younger groups collaborated on a combined performance for their festival entry. Chichester and Worthing Youth Orchestras joined forces for the event and approximately 50 children, mainly from years 5, 6 & 7, had the opportunity to perform in front of the judging panel. 

 Each group was awarded “commended” in their class and had a certificate to recognise their achievements. This recognition not only celebrates the individual accomplishments of these talented musicians but also reflects the collective dedication and passion fostered within the West Sussex Music Centres. 

James Underwood, Chief Executive for West Sussex Music, said: 

“It was wonderful for WSM to be a part of the Chichester Festival for Music, Dance and Speech. There are so many talented groups involved and our students learn so much by being a part of it. Congratulations to all the participants and their teachers.”
