Youth Makes Music Concert

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.

Youth Makes Music 2013 – Urgent Reminder

The Youth Makes Music concert takes place in less than two weeks time at the Royal Festival Hall, South Bank Centre, on Monday 18th March at 7.00pm.  The number of clubs that have applied so far for tickets is extremely disappointing, despite the fact that District Council voted unanimously to hold it.   What kind of message would we sending to the young performers if they see a half empty hall?  I attach a ticket application form to enable you to apply for tickets if you have not done so.  We would also welcome any offers of help on the day both during the day and in the evening to marshal the performers and generally look after them.

Rotary Young Musician Winner from London

The Regional Final of the Young Musician competition took place on Saturday March 19th in Colchester. District 1130 was represented by Rebecca Leung (aged 11) and Christopher Hirschman (aged 17), both of whom performed at the recent Youth Makes Music concert. The standard of performance from all the competitors at the Final was very high and the judges admitted that selecting a winner was not easy but I’m pleased to say that they chose Rebecca. She will now go forward to the RIBI Final on May 14th at Bedford School, De Parys Avenue, Bedford MK40 2TU.
