School Band Brings Sunshine to BirminghamBand MFY Birmingham
The school band gave a great performance in Birmingham Symphony Hall in the National Festival of Music For Youth. They were one of only two primary school brass bands in the country to be invited to take part in this prestigious event, and they made us all very proud.
The band played 4 pieces all linked by a weather theme: ‘I Can See Clearly Now the Rain Has Gone’, ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’, ‘Bring Me Sunshine’, and ‘It’s Raining Men’ (for a big finish!).
The judges gave great feedback, saying they were ‘an excellent band’, who ‘captured the joy and fun of the music’ and had ‘excellent playing in all departments’.
Well done to all our wonderful young musicians!

The audience loved it!
