Gifted students to perform for the regional Music for Youth Festival
A group of MAGT music students from years 12 and 13 are busy rehearsing performances for the regional Music for Youth Festival which is to be held this Saturday at Haven High Academy in Boston. The two performance groups, Out By 8.30 and This Harmony, have prepared two songs each and will perform them in front of a packed audience which includes professional performers and composers. They will then receive feedback and advice from ‘Music Mentors’.
Teija McLarnon, one of the singers in This Harmony, commented ‘I’m really looking forward to performing in the festival and hearing what professional musicians think of our performances. We’ve just started arranging our own pieces so it will be really helpful to get some feedback as to how we can improve them and the next direction our group should take.’
