There’s excitement in the air at Symphony Hall as we put the final touches into place for this Thursday 4 June’s Generation Ladywood Showcase, which will see hundreds of youngsters from the Ladywood area putting on the performance of a lifetime as they take to the Symphony Hall stage.
The Generation Ladywood Showcase is a culmination of many months’ hard work and will see mini maestros from over 15 schools perform for friends, family and even the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Councillor Raymond Hassall.
This year the showcase will feature Bostin Brass, Jazzlines Trio, Arun Ghosh, Ex Cathedra and Samantha Wright, alongside talented youngsters from Barford Primary School, Chad Vale Primary School, City road Primary Academy, George Dixon Primary School, Nelson Primary School, Oratory R.C. Primary and Nursery School, St Catherine of Siena Catholic Primary School, St Edmund’s Catholic Primary School, St John’s and St Peter’s C of E Primary school, St George’s C of E Primary School, St Patrick’s Catholic Primary school. St Thomas CE (VA) Primary School, Summerfield Primary School and Oasis Academy Woodview.
Guests can expect to be entertained with music that crosses an array of spectrums, from jazz to Bruno Mars.
The concert, brought to you by THSH in partnership with Birmingham Music Service, will demonstrate the talent, commitment and enthusiasm for music shared by the children, staff and families involved in the project, and living in the Ladywood area.
Now in its third year, the project started as a legacy from our 21st anniversary celebrations and we are proud of the commitment shown by local children, schools and our funders who have made this project possible.
