‘Today (Sunday 14th October) I spent the afternoon at Newcastle City Hall enjoying the talent of young people in the shape of choirs and bands from throughout the North East.
The second half was opened by 36 members of Consett Junior Brass, children past and present of Consett Junior School and conducted by Mr Jackson.
The band played 3 pieces and more than proved their place in the line up. The response from the audience and other children alike was amazing!!
Today was an experience of a lifetime, but i hope not the only one!
Mr Jackson and Miss Waters work so so hard with the band and you can feel it in the music the children play, the passion of the staff has definitely rubbed off and you can see it in the children’s performances.
I want to thank Mr Jackson and Miss Waters for the experience they have afforded all the children who play in the band, I also want to thank each member for the band for the experience you afforded the audience today – you were ALL awesome.’
