The Joint Concert Band was recently invited to perform at the National Concert Band Festival (NCBF) heats, held at Newman RC College in Oldham on 17 November. The young musicians and their conductor Miss Sherry took this wonderful opportunity to play in front of experienced adjudicators and receive valuable feedback.

The group played ‘Into the Clouds’, ‘How to Train your Dragon’ and ‘Klezmer Karnival’ at the event, impressing the adjudicators with all three pieces.

Following the performance, the Band was presented with a Platinum Award: the highest possible accolade. The Platinum Award also comes with an automatic invitation to perform at the Nationals in 2020, which will be held at RNCM in April.

The Music staff in both Divisions are delighted with the Joint Concert Band’s achievement, and the young musicians involved are now looking forward to preparing for both the Nationals and the host of school music events throughout the rest of the academic year.
