Festival Concert on Friday 13th March at St Aldhelm’s

The Music Festival is this Saturday at St Aldhelm’ Church and Centre, from 9am. We look forward to seeing lots of musicians of all ages there! If you would like to come and listen, the entry fee is £5 for the whole day.

In the morning there will be bands and choirs, including Weymouth Concert Brass, also some young string, piano and wind players. In the Church Centre there are also some talented music theatre performers.

After lunch, there are more solo musicians, including the advanced piano class, other instrumental soloists and some solo singers. Towards the end of the afternoon we shall be entertained by the young musicians of the various DASP (Dorset Area Schools’ Partnership) groups.

We look forward to seeing you there!

The Weymouth and Dorset Music Festival is a non-competitive festival open to all musicians of all ages and abilities. Entrants have the rare opportunity to perform their music in front of an audience – many for the first time – and get feedback from a highly qualified and friendly adjudicator.

The Festival provides a whole day of music, from 9am through to 5.00pm and it would be great to have an audience for our young (and not so young) performers.

Once again we have distinguished adjudicators for the Festival.  Philip Pooley will adjudicate the vocal classes and brass instrumental entries; Simon Clarkson will adjudicate the organ class, strings and instrumental ensembles;  Philippa Topham will adjudicate piano and woodwind.

Please come along and support our local music-makers!  Light refreshments will be available.  Programmes can be ordered in advance, online, at a discount price, until 6th March – go to the “Apply Now” page for further details.  You can buy a family ticket at the door for £10.
