Every year after the Big Arts day the arena is transformed into a full concert hall for Youth Makes Music, our ticketed celebration of some of the best schools’ music in Plymouth.

Youth Makes Music 2011

Our partners Plymouth Youth Music Service again came up with a terrific bill of talent and variety, including Dixieland jazz, steel pan, string ensembles, carnival music and dance, choirs and a full junior orchestra. Once again the photographs tell the story better than words, but with live music you really have to be there for full appreciation.

This was a fantastic opportunity to perform on the city’s largest stage with professional technical support and the young musicians certainly took full advantage. It was also a memorable and inspiring evening for all the teachers, parents and friends who made up the large audience.

All Grooved Up, Lipson Community College

Year 3 String Group, Plympton St Maurice Primary School
