We've had a great first day at the Music for Youth Schools Prom at the Royal Albert Hall. So much action and so many great performances, the standard just seems to get better and better even when we didn't think it was possible.
Check out this video highlight developed by the brilliant Laura Kidd on behalf of Music for Youth. Check out more updates on their YouTube Channel
What's cooler than a Ukulele? 6 Ukulele's!! Enjoy this while we get some rest for another busy day tomorrow.
Next week the majority of our crew will travel to London to take part in one of the many highlights of our year which sees 3000 young musicians perform in the most iconic concert hall in the country, The Royal Albert Hall for the Music for Youth Schools Prom. Ev-entz will be working with our friends at MFY to produce, stage manage and crew this massive 3 day event.
We brought you many photos and videos after last year's event and hopefully we'll be able to do the same this year. We are looking forward to watching some amazing performances again this year and good luck to our friends at Gwent Music Support Service who will also be performing.
For more details of this year's event, photos and videos from last year and ticket information for the 3 day event which is held on Monday 7th November - Wednesday 9th November please visit www.mfy.org.uk/coreseason/schoolsprom
For now enjoy watching one of the many videos taking last from last year's event by Music for Youth.
We have recently had the pleasure of working with and supporting Sinfonia Cymru on their Autumn tour around Wales.
This is a new appointment for Ev-entz which saw us provide staging and stage management for the orchestra during their rehearsal period in Cardiff and for the 4 concert dates at the Pavillion, Llandrindod Well, Pontyberem Mermorial Hall, Newport Riverfront Theatre and the final concert at the new Dora Stoutzker Hall, Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, Cardiff.
This is a fantastic orchestra which was established in 1996. The orchestra now works in partnership with the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama to support young musicians who are at the outset of their professional musical career. Sinfonia Cymru provides the players with the necessary skills and experience which is essential for professional musicians today. There was so much talent on display during this concert tour, all the musicians were very welcoming and friendly, and the tour had a wonderful reception from audiences at all venues. Concert tour details:
Conductor Gareth Jones
Soloist Llyr Williams
Haydn Symphony No.83 in Gminor
Mozart Piano concerto no.27 in Bb major
Dag Wiren Serenade for strings
Haydn symphony 85 in Bb major
We are pleased that we could provide our services to such a great orchestra and hopefully we will work together on other projects in the not too distant future. For more details about the orchestra and when you can see them next please visit www.sinfoniacymru.co.uk
