Following their acclaimed performance at the National Festival of Music for Youth at the CBSO Centre in Birmingham last July, our award-winning world music choir Mundo Afrika have now been invited to perform at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall at the Music for Youth ‘Schools Proms’.
This annual event takes place over three nights in the world’s most famous concert hall and allows over 1000 young musicians take part in a concert like no other. This not to be missed occasion will feature full-scale youth orchestras, some of the best jazz bands, chamber groups, rock bands and choirs from across the UK who will all perform to a packed house of 5,000 people. It will be a spectacular night, complete with all the expected pomp and circumstance and a ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ finale.
Mundo Afrika have a proven track record within the Music for Youth world, receiving numerous performance awards over the past 15 years – in fact, they performed at the Schools Proms in 2001 with the ‘first generation’ of performers. This year, our talented singers and drummers have been training their own ‘next generation’ and incorporated some equally talented ‘Mini’ Mundo Afrikans from Freshfield and Trinity St. Peter’s Primary Schools.
The young performers will travel down to London for their once in a lifetime performance on Tuesday 15 November. Supporters’ places are available – please contact the Performing Arts Office for further details.
