MILTON Keynes Music Service’s Youth Orchestra has won a national award for their performance at the Music for Youth Festival, held at the Birmingham Symphony Hall on Saturday.
The orchestra, which is made up of 50 young people aged between 12 and 18, played a 20 minute programme including an arrangement of Duke Ellington songs. The orchestra is conducted by the Music Service’s Tom Molloy and Julian Pentz.
David Rose, Head of Milton Keynes Music Service, said: “We are delighted that the Youth Orchestra has won this award. The students all agreed that the day was the best musical experience they have ever had.”
“As a result of this achievement, there is a possibility that the orchestra will be invited to appear at the Schools Proms at the Albert Hall, London.”
