The Beautiful Noise Orchestra was a spectacular success

The exciting launch of our new annual youth music project, to showcase local instrumental and choral talents was a spectacular success. The project brought together 44 young musicians aged 14-18, performing an eclectic programme of film music. Over 200 primary school children attended the afternoon rehearsal and the orchestra performed to a Festival audience in the evening.

“It was a wonderful evening – the coming together of local young musicians sharing their talent and love of music in a non-competitive, inclusive event.” Jane Birt, Festival Volunteer

“The concert showcased the power of bringing young people together with music to produce a concert of professional standard.  A delightful evening for performers and audience.”  Becky Parker, SLGGS Visiting Professor, School of Physics and Astronomy, Queen Mary, University of London

“We really enjoyed the Beautiful Noise Orchestra afternoon it was lovely to sit and listen to the pieces of music in beautiful surroundings. Our pupils were highly engaged and very interested in the different instruments, especially those that they had neither seen nor heard before – and the event allowed the children to listen to music played in ways they don’t often get a chance to hear.” Clare Pearson, Teacher, Bridge & Patrixbourne CEP School
