Youth Solo Performance Day
Saturday 2nd March, Time TBC
St Wilfrid's Church, South Kilvington, Thirsk, YO7 2NN

A solo performance event for young musicians of all abilities, split into three sections; beginner, intermediate and advanced. Musicians will perform within the set time limit, in groups of ability. A fantastic opportunity for young musicians to gain experience of performing in front of an audience.

There will be a panel of three wonderful professional musicians who will give feedback to each performer, building confidence, resilience and performance skills, and certificates of participation will be presented to everyone who takes part. There is no competitive element and it will be a supportive and encouraging event for young performers. 


Beginner (Beginner-Grade 2) - Length of performance 1-2 minutes

Intermediate (Grade 3-Grade 5) - Length of performance 2-4 minutes

Advanced (Grade 6-Grade 8+) - Length of performance 4-6 minutes

The brilliant Matthew Atherton will be available to accompany performers if required. On the form below, please indicate if you would like Matthew to play for your child's performance, if you will bring your own accompanist or if the piece is unaccompanied.
