The Annual Concert
The annual Music Heroes concert is becoming a local must-see live music event! Held in the autumn term each year, the concert is a celebration of a selection of our students from very beginner to those on their way to a career in music. Students also get to see the Music Heroes Band perform some of their favourite songs. We literally roll out the red carpet for our students with a professional photographer and videographer to capture the evening, goody bags for performers and of course, the “Student of the Year” award. We want our students to sample live music and performance from day 1; to be inspired by their tutors and other students.
In 2023, the concert will again be held at the beautiful Barnes Theatre in the grounds of Shrewsbury School. Last year we sold 200 tickets. This year promises to be another sell-out. Get the date in your diary: Friday 3rd November.
Here’s what some of our audience had to say about last year’s concert:
I loved the way your whole team worked to make the children shine. It was so lovely to catch a glimpse of each child’s journey in musicianship and the inspiration that your talented members obviously are… watching the enrapt children’s faces as your band performed was a real delight.
I loved to see the relationship between your music teachers and their pupils too. So very positive.
We were there to support Phoebe performing her flute solo. The music heroes are exceptional and so brilliantly supportive of the young people interested in music.
It was a brilliant night, we really enjoyed it!
What a Fantastic evening. Thanks to everyone involved, my son was beaming all the way through.
It was awesome!! Joe’s not stopped talking about it the whole way back in the car. Great show and all the performers did so well!
Instrument Showcase Concerts
Throughout the year we also hold more intimate, low key events, focusing on one instrument, allowing students to sample solo performance in a relaxed setting.
Live Performances in Schools by the Music Heroes Band: Gigs for Kids!
We were delighted to see the importance of access to live performance being prioritised in the new National Plan for Music Education (England and Wales).
The Music Heroes band are available for mini-gigs to allow children to experience a full live-music concert with a 5 piece band. You do not have to be an existing Music Heroes school to access this service.
We are available for nationwide concerts. 2023 will see the first ever Music Heroes Band tour of Powys, Wales.
