September Music News 2017

Forthcoming events include:

'Hooray for Hollywood' is the first concert on Tuesday 10 October at 7 p.m. – Tickets go on sale to Friends of NSB Music on Wednesday 13 September at 12 p.m. and on general release on Wednesday 20th September. Tickets are priced at Adults £5, Concessions £4, Friends £3. 

This opening performance will be a film music concert giving our bigger ensembles the chance to play through some exciting music from a number of legendary composers from this genre. Added to the excitement will be the bonus of having pupils dressing up as their favourite film character. For every Chewbacca and Disney Princess there will be a James Bond or Clark Kent! We are not looking for expensive fancy dress hire but home made creations - or a mixture of both. If any parents know of anybody who specialises in film props please get in touch as we would like to decorate the Theatre.

The following bands will be entertaining you:

Symphonic Winds

Big Band I

Big Band III


Symphony Orchestra

Wind Band

Jazz Vocal


Clarinet Ensemble


Bhatt Quintet

Minor Saxology

and our new All Stars Jazz Group will perform in the interval.
