Grand Gala Concert Wombourne featuring High Arcal School Advanced Jazz Band

On the evening of Saturday 25th October 2014, we held our Grand Gala Concert at Wombourne Civic Centre. Our special guests were High Arcal School Advanced Jazz Band led by James Roberts. The band was started about 10 years ago. In this time they have enjoyed a lot of success in regional and national competitions & events.
They have won numerous Gold & Platinum awards at the National Concert Band Festival and have been invited to perform in Music for Youth’s National Festival at Adrian Boult Hall at Birmingham Conservatoire.
The band also perform in various concerts in school and may be booked to play at events in the wider community. E.g. they have performed at Brierley Hill Civic Hall.

Wombourne Music Festival 2013 review

Extract taken from Wombourne Music Festival 2013 article written by Richard Hill for St. Benedict Biscop Church.

In the evening we had the delight of Wolverhampton Orpheus Male Voice Choir, and that was another pleasure. They were well rehearsed, effortless and with a narrator (compĂ©re) of clear diction and some wit. This was easy listening of the finest quality with such clear enunciation. The performance of ‘How Great Thou Art’ at the end of the evening was so well done.
