West Sussex Youth Orchestra goes national

It’s celebration time for the West Sussex Youth Orchestra as they’ve been invited to perform at the Music for Youth National Festival at Birmingham in July. 

This invitation is a huge achievement for the students and their conductor Adam Barker and shows the high level of excellence the orchestra has attained. 

The Music for Youth National Festival takes place on between 4 and 6 July and will be a chance for invited orchestras, choirs and bands from all over the UK to perform at Birmingham Symphony Hall. 

The glowing feedback the Orchestra received from the panel following its regional performance has left the whole team thrilled.  

One of the comments from the Music for Youth panel was:   

“This orchestra has so much energy and vibrancy in the way it approaches music making. You show excellent ensemble skills throughout, excellent rhythmical work, good balance, and strong melodies. Bravo.” 

John Randall, manager of West Sussex Music Centre, said:  

“We know just how much work the young people who are in the orchestra put into their performances. To have it pay off in such an excellent way with such glowing and high praise, along with the invite to perform, is a true example of how far they’ve all come and a testament to the hard work of Adam and the WSYO team.” 

West Sussex Youth Orchestra meets and rehearses at Horsham Music Centre, based at Millais School, on Saturdays during term time.
