Sutton Music Service Spring Concerts – 21st to 25th March 2022

Sutton Music Service is incredibly proud of all the students who participated in our Spring concerts between the 21st and 25th of March. Their performances were excellent. The ensembles performed a wide selection of repertoire from Bizet, and Strauss, to the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stevie Wonder! Thank you to our tutors and conductors for their hard work preparing our students for these performances. We would also like to thank the teams at St Andrew’s Church in Cheam and All Saints Church in Carshalton for their support.

 

It was fabulous to see live performances again with no restrictions on audience numbers, meaning that our students played to packed audiences on each concert date. Feedback from the audience has been extremely positive, praising a “fantastic evening” and noting how the students’ “enthusiasm and talent were clearly on show”.

 

Pride was a strong theme throughout the concerts, and it was great to hear how many students were ‘inspired’ by watching the performances of our more advanced ensembles. Awards were given at the concerts to those students whom the conductors and tutors thought had been the most improved and who gave outstanding contributions at rehearsals during the Spring term. A complete list of our award winners is below.

"My kids play in the Sutton Youth Symphonic Band and I attended the concert on Tuesday night, which was excellent. Many thanks to all involved in putting this event together."

"May I take this opportunity to say what a brilliant concert it was last night. My son left buzzing, not even Fortnite can get him that animated! He is in the training band and seeing the more advanced musicians play has really inspired him."

"Thank you for the spring concerts. We really enjoyed the music and were amazed at the standard of all the bands. Like it was said on the night, you wouldn't know that these kids had had two years of lockdown. Thank you for all you do to provide for our kids."
