Many Rotarians from London attended the Rotary “Youth Makes Music” Concert at the Royal Festival Hall on 22 February 2018. The programme included a wide range of music from choirs, to a string quartet, to a concert band, to a jazz orchestra, to carnatic music, to a steel band, to a full symphony orchestra, to a rock band and even a solo rock guitarist.
Under the compere for the evening, the BBC’s Ellie Crisell, the audience were introduced to each of the acts. All of the artists were schoolchildren or students studying in schools or colleges within the Rotary in London District.
All agreed that the performers produced music of a very high standard, and the event was a wonderful window on the young musical talent in London.
