Two members of the Crompton House School Brass Band and their teacher receive a National Partnership award for Brass Bands as part of a presentation ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall.
On Sunday 19th January, the Crompton House School Brass Band spent the day with Town Hall Symphony Hall (THSH), Birmingham as part of their MFY National Partnership Award.
THSH hosted The Crompton House School Brass Band for a day at Symphony Hall, Birmingham. As part of their MFY National Partnership Award experience, the Crompton House School Brass Band took to the stage in the Symphony Hall Café to give a special performance and were then treated to tickets to an evening concert featuring one of the most successful and renowned brass bands, the Black Dyke Band, performing live in Symphony Hall.
Hannah Baines from THSH said,
The Crompton House School Brass Band gave a spirited performance to a packed out audience in the café in Symphony Hall, Birmingham. The conductor, who was a sixth form student, really engaged with the players. It was really very impressive. For the performance, the band were seated in Symphony Hall with a fantastic view of The Black Dyke Band, so they could learn from and see the professional musicians up close"
Jack Pickford, Director of Music at Crompton House School,
"Thank you to THSH. We were all well looked after and were made to feel at home.” On the experience of seeing The Black Dyke Band on stage in Symphony hall, he mentioned that for some of the young people who took part in the day, it was probably the first time that they had experienced a live concert featuring a band of The Black Dyke Brass Band's calibre; “Hearing a whole different standard of performance was inspirational."
Thank you to THSH for hosting the MFY National Partnership Awards for Brass Bands. On asking Hannah about what it meant for them to host the award, she said,
"It’s always a pleasure to welcome talented young musicians to perform in our spaces. They bring a unique energy to their performances, which is always contagious to watch. We were delighted to have the opportunity to welcome the Crompton House School Brass Band to Symphony Hall, Birmingham and give them another opportunity to share their talents and achievements with our audiences."
