RTSFC students chosen for National Festival of Music for Youth

13th May 2016

We are proud to announce that 20 of our students have been chosen to perform in this year’s National Festival of Music for Youth.

Each year Music for Youth welcomes over 400 live acts to the Birmingham based event. It’s a great platform for young talent and provides a chance to network with likeminded musicians.

The students include members of Southampton Youth Orchestra, Southampton Youth Brass Band and our college band, Two Years, who will take to the stage between 5th – 9th July.

Naturally we’re extremely proud of these students following in the footsteps of last year’s Jazz Band who performed in the Royal Albert Hall as a part of the Music for Youth Prom.

Tickets are available for £17.50/£8/£5 at www.mfy.org.uk/coreseason/national.
