Youth Music Festival

6th March 2014

In March the De Warenne samba group and choir took part in the regional 'Youth Music' Festival in Garforth. The ensembles had been working incredibly hard in preparation for this event under the guidance of their ex pert music directors and the students loved every minute of the day. The styles and musical skills of the competitors were incredibly diverse ranging from jazz and rock to more traditional folk-style. Our students relished the opportunity to broaden their awareness and understanding of such a range of musical repertoire. Both De Warenne ensembles delivered exceptional performances and our choir performed two songs. The first was a mash up of three popular songs, which was performed with real flair. This was followed by a performance of Passenger's 'Let Her Go', which the audience found very moving.The samba group performed an arrangement consisting of different samba styles, creating a very energetic and fun atmosphere. We are incredibly proud of what the students achieved, and the feedback was very positive indeed.
