Sound of success in the new year for youth musicians

Published Wednesday, 15 January 2020

Young musicians from across Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull got 2020 off to the sound of music during a weekend packed with performances from 4 – 5 January.

Youth music

45 young people took part in a weekend of musical activity under the direction of guest conductor, Alex Walker, from the Royal Academy of Music and former conductor of the Royal Philharmonic and Russian State Symphony.

The weekend concluded with a highly-praised performance at the Warwick Arts Centre, which was supported by SoundLab- Cov and Coventry Jazz groups.

Cllr Kevin Maton, Coventry City Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: “It’s fantastic to see that so many young people are getting involved in unique opportunities to develop their musical talent, and that they have the chance to perform in incredible venues under the direction of world-renowned conductors.

“I’d encourage any young person in the city that’s passionate about music to get involved with the Music Hub if they aren’t already and make the most of what’s on offer.”

25 other local young musicians also joined the orchestra on Saturday afternoon (4 January) for a ‘come and play’ with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. They then had the opportunity to watch the first of the three concert tour of the UK at the Butterworth hall.

Coventry Music Hub are currently seeking more young musicians to get involved with their next event.

On 22 – 23 February they will be hosting the Regional Orchestra Course.
