Three of our PYMS tutors; Helen Welsh, Olwen Knowles, and Simon Keates worked this year alongside Ivybridge Community College’s brand new Music Teacher Christy Smith throughout the Summer with players of all ages to form the City of Plymouth Summer Holiday Concert Band. Rehearsing every Tuesday during the holidays, they met at Mount Gould Church and finally performed a lively concert on the 31st August to a full house.
The Summer holiday concert band welcomes members of any age and is aimed at young players and adult learners.
Their repertoire this year consisted of hits by Queen, The Beatles, Sky, and some Disco classics. Disney musicals such as Beauty and The Beast and the Jungle Book and a few classical pieces as well as the summer holiday band traditions of starting each half with The Muppets Show Theme and Hogan’s Heroes. It was a thorough success this year, everyone worked very hard and performed brilliantly.
