July Music News 2017

Concert photos

We really hope you all enjoyed the Summer concerts. Photos from both nights can be found on the Music page of the school website. If orders can be with us as soon as possible we will try and get them processed before the end of term, depending on numbers.


A fantastic day was had last Thursday when Symphonic Winds performed at the National Festival of Music for Youth in Birmingham. Feedback from the mentors was very positive but we won't know until September whether we have an award. Big Band also played extremely well in the Festival Fringe - the performance is now available on our Twitter feed @NSBMusicDep

End of Term
