Warwick Hall has been busy these last few months with musical events. Amongst them were.........
The Warwickshire Symphony Orchestra held their first concert in the new Hall and in conjunction with the Warwick Foundation Symphony Orchestra and Canticum. They combined to perform Verdi’s Requiem to an audience of 400
Warwickshire Music held a very successful weekend of Music Makers with workshops and performances with a Windband Day and Singing Playgrounds, each finishing the day with a concert for family and friends. At the same time, another young group from Warwickshire Music were performing Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat to a combined audience of over 400 in the Bridge House Theatre.
The highlight of the April was hosting the finals of the National Concert Band Festival over the weekend of the 8 – 9 April. The weekend audience of over 1,300 enjoyed glorious sun shine as well as some of the UK’s finest wind ensembles. During the day, there was a different programme every 30 minutes from school bands on the Saturday and community bands on the Sunday. The Royal Armoured Corp and HMS Collingwood Big Band performed during the day while the gala concert on the Saturday evening included the Central Band of the Royal Air Force. Five school Foundation bands qualified for the national final (more than any other school in the country) and we emerged with an astonishing two Platinum and three Gold awards.
There has also been the Sing It Loud Community Choir and the Birmingham Christadelphian Choral Society who returned to the new hall after many previous events in the old Guy Nelson Hall.
Warwick Hall is the ideal venue for music events with fantastic aucustics and variety of seating arrangements.
