Gwent Music Showcase 2022 at the ICC wales!

On November 27th, Gwent Music were delighted to hold our 2022 musical showcase, at the fantastic ICC Wales, in Newport.

After the restrictions faced during the last few years, it felt incredible to be back with a bang and show off everything that our talented pupils have been working on this year.

We were treated to a great range of musical acts, and we would like to say a great big thank you to all of the groups who were involved in creating such a wonderful evening of entertainment.

 Gilwern Primary School performed their Celtic music performance, which they have been studying as part of their “Around the World” journey.  Pupils from ALC Tillery Street and Six Bells Campus, George Street Primary, Rhos y Fedwen & St Mary’s CIW, all joined together to blow us away with their pBuzz playing! The boys of Llanwenrn High School’s rap group wowed us with their lyrics, and we also saw performances from Gwent Music’s Wind band, Brass, Harp and Senior Strings ensembles.

To add a cherry on top of what was already truly special evening, we were privileged to be joined on stage by Sir Karl Jenkins, world renowned Welsh composer, who conducted our Senior Strings group as they performed his classic piece, “Palladio”

We hope that everyone involved, from the talented young musicians on the stage, to the family and friends who came to show their support in the audience, enjoyed the showcase and will join us in looking forward to what the musical talent of Gwent youth will have to offer us in 2023!
