Monmouthshire Spring Showcase

March 12th, 2019 by Emma Archer

Ysgol Gyfun Trefynwy, nos Wener 15 Mawrth 7pm
Monmouth Comprehensive School, Friday 15th March 7pm

Gwent Music is pleased to welcome Music For Youth to our Spring Showcase series. We have developed
this series in order to sustain the involvement of as many children and young people with the Music for
Youth event, whilst responding to ongoing Local Authority savings. This new way of showcasing the
fantastic talent we have, will mean that all the groups you hear tonight will automatically be considered
for selection to progress to the next level at the National Festival in Birmingham in July; we hope that
some will gain a place on a main stage. There will be an opportunity at the end of the concert for the
groups to receive some verbal feedback from our mentor, and we will circulate the written feedback to all
performers.
