In Harmony Telford and The Destroyers professional gig!

Over the summer, In Harmony Telford Nucleo Orchestra had the amazing opportunity to perform alongside professional MegaFolk band The Destroyers in the Big Top in Telford Town Park as part of the Telford 50 celebrations. Watch the video for the highlights!

The young musicians spent 2 days learning 7 folk tunes from around Europe, and then performed with The Destroyers on Tuesday 14th August to a very excited audience!

Following this, they repeated the performance at Birmingham’s prestigious world-renowned Symphony Hall as part of the Sistema Europe Youth Orchestra (SEYO) family festival, even performing one number alongside the 200 members of SEYO. Family members travelled across to Birmingham to watch the young people perform.

This was a fantastic opportunity for the young people to work alongside professional musicians in a different context, learning new skills and being challenged on their instruments.

Big thanks go out to our supporters – this project was funded by Shrewsbury Folk Festival‘s Room for All programme with additional support from Royal Birmingham Conservatoire,
