We had a fantastic time performing as part of Nottingham City's Light Night 2019. The 12th year of Light Night celebrated the 50th anniversary of Apollo and the first man on the moon with beautiful illumination displays, music and theatre across the city. Nottingham Music Service was delighted to have been a part of the fun!
A massive thank you to everyone who dropped by the beautiful St. Peter's Church (St Peter's Gate near Marks and Spencer) on February 8, 2019 to see our young musicians.
In the first half we had performances by:
- RHYO Intermediate Orchestra
- RHYO Connect - Wind/Brass
- RHYO Connect - Strings
- Bloco Notto
- Band Factory
After the interval, we had a magical performance by our incredibly talented Robin Hood Youth Orchestra featuring classical, film and popular music including the Game of Thrones theme song, Swinging Safari and Jerusalem.
We raised £402 in donations! Thank you so very much for your support - all donations will be DOUBLED through our Catalyst: Evole grant which means your support has twice the impact. All our proceeds go towards funding life-changing music programmes for Nottingham's young people.
We also want to thank the wonderful staff at St. Peter's Church and the Friends of Nottingham Music Service who managed the refreshments at the event and made sure that everyone's cake needs were met! Another thank you to everyone who donated cakes and baked goodies for the table. We couldn't do all this without you.
