Music talent takes centre stage
Saint Aidan’s School Band open second half of Fylde and Wyre Celebration of Music event
On 3rd March 2017, schools from across Fylde and Wyre gathered to celebrate the talented musicians from across the area through a variety of ensemble pieces. The events, organised by Millfield High School, takes place every year at the Opera House in March.
The talents on show ranged from performances from primary ukulele groups, to musical theatre style troupes and, of course, Saint Aidan’s very own brass band. Opening the second half, the band (conducted by Mr Charnock) impressed the audience by performing Toccata and Fugue in D Minor
Mr Phil Dalton, Head of Music, said, “This event gives students the opportunity to experience performing in a 3000 seater venue. The band gave a sterling performance. They were under pressure as they hadn’t had long to learn the piece but you would not have been able to tell. Each student left the event with an enormous sense of achievement.”
