Gala Concert and Music Festival
We have a proud history of raising money for charity and supporting young musicians; in recent years we have supported, in particular, Hollybank Trust and Classic FM’s charity, Music Makers. In 2011, the charity that we supported wasKirklees Music School which does an incredible job in encouraging young people to participate actively in making music.
The Kirklees Music School Orchestra were the guest artists at our Annual Gala Concert at Huddersfield Town Hall on the 14th May 2011.
We also organise the Music Festival in the Huddersfield Town Centre on the same day as our Gala concert, bringing various musical groups to support our chosen charity. The Music Festival in now in its 5th year.
We performed with the world famous Brighouse and Rastrick Brass band in 2012 at our Gala concert. We also had our favorite ladies choir, Marsh Ladies Choir. We raised money for Hollybank Trust, a worthwhile charity locally to us in Mirfield. We have supported Hollybank for a number of years and we are pleased to do it again in 2012.
