Music for Youth 2019 Performance
Plumcroft School Band were lucky to be given a place to perform at the Music for Youth Festival at the Royal Festival Hall at the Southbank Centre. Twenty of us got the train to Charing Cross with our instruments and we performed two songs - Cantaloupe Island and Seven Nation Army - Plumcroft Style. We made up our own rap to go with Seven Nation Army as part of the school poetry project.
Other performers in the festival included an amazing steel band and four choirs, all from schools around London. We were all given feedback afterwards by the professional Music Mentors, and we received really positive comments about our playing including:
I love the ethos and vibe you establish.
So impressive that you have set this all up by ear.
The ensemble was really tight and great to see you focussed so well on your leader.
Great ensemble from the wind and nice articulation.
Rap – we loved your attitude and it was fantastic to hear you commit to and sell these lyrics
