Wolverhampton Youth Orchestras Summer Tour

We had a great evenings entertainment from the Wolverhampton Youth Orchestra and the Wolverhampton Youth Wind Orchestra at their pre-tour concert on Thursday. The works were wonderfully performed by a group of very talented young musicians on an evening which gives the City an opportunity to recognise their achievements.

This annual event has been supported by the Rotary clubs of Wolverhampton for many years and helps to provide financial support for the Orchestras summer tour which this year will see them visit Spain. During the evening Presidents of the supporting Clubs, including our own President Roger, presented the young musicians with certificates and diplomas recognising their achievements.

This years Concert was extra special as it’s was the last pre-tour Concert for Conductor Keith Sedgebeer who has held the baton for the Youth Orchestra for the last 35 years during which time he has helped to build its profile both nationally and internationally as well as making such a positive difference to the lives of thousands of the young people in the City who have been involved with the Wolverhampton Music Service.

Bravo Mr Sedgebeer.
