There really is "No place like...Coventry"

What a concert showcasing there really is No place like Coventry at the Albany Theatre

What a show! It was atmospheric, heart-felt, inspiring, and a real credit to everyone involved.

 

The show started with a beautiful performance from Coventry Music’s Talent Development group, inspired by a trip along the Coventry Canal, it was a fascinating journey that the young musicians, supported by co-creators Derek Nisbet and Liz Mytton, made to compose the symphonic poem We Share This Space. We were then treated to a perfect performance from members of the Coventry and Warwickshire Youth Orchestra performing "In the Hall of the Mountain King” and "Trepak". This was followed by a magical set by Flawless Rhythm, part of Coventry Youth Jazz, which really got everyone in the mood to dance! The Heat rocked the stage with a fab set including The Enemy’s ‘Aggro,’ having earned their place on stage through Caludon Castle’s Battle of the Bands. Finally, we were treated to some singing from a massed schools choir, superbly accompanied by pianist Annette Ball and members of the Coventry Youth Jazz Orchestra. They performed "Made in Coventry,” composed by Robert Ramskill as part of a set of songs specially commissioned for the Mornings of Music festival held in schools across Coventry earlier this year, and Kerry Andrew’s "No Place Like…" This was a real treat and performed brilliantly, complete with actions and sound effects by all the children involved, coached and conducted by the BBC Singers’ Ed Price.

 

We really hope all the parents, carers, friends and family who were in attendance enjoyed the evening and the outstanding performances from all those involved. Well done everyone....You make Coventry Music proud!!

 

A special thanks to all the teachers and staff involved in making this event a success. You did a great job!
