BBC Music Day

24fae0cf4e190078d5b9896e00870cd9_XLOn Friday 5 June Bradford Centenary Square was filled with music in a full day of live performances from orchestras, bands and choirs.

This was the first ever BBC Music Day - a nationwide celebration of everything we love about music, with the aim of bringing people together from all backgrounds, all ages and across musical genres. There were 10 BBC Music Day locations accorss the country including Plymouth, Liverpool, Glasgow and Bradford.

More than 20 of our students were involved throughout the day playing in the Bradford Youth Wind Band, the Bradford Youth Training Orchestra and the Bradford Youth Orchestra. Beatrice Overend played in the Bradford Youth Wind Orchestra on flute and the Bradford Youth Orchestra on Bassoon, Andrew Payn played percussion (timpanis, bass drum, etc) in the Bradford Youth Wind Orchestra and Bradford Youth Training Orchestra, Elizabeth Kelly played Baritone Saxophone in the Bradford Youth Wind Band, the Clarinet in the Bradford Youth Training Orchestra and the Flute in the Junior band.

As you can see many of our students play multiple instruments and are involved in two or three different orchestras/bands which demands great dedication and talent. Well done to all those who took part, we are lucky to have such a talented group of students at BGS.
