Raising aspirations - releasing potential

Music for Youth National Finals

Two year 10 students did Blackfen proud on Saturday at the Music For Youth national finals. Evie Shaw and Megan Vidler performing with The Gas Tanks, were up against some very strong competition, but were called "a very exciting band, with a real diversity in their approach".


They performed their three songs brilliantly and received the following comments from the judges:

"vibrant and engaging performance style'

"good stylistic awareness"

"a real sense of identity"

"bold, tight and control rhythm section playing"

"fun, catchy and very memorable melody and lyrics"


2 groups are chosen to go perform at Music for Youth Proms which takes place at the Royal Albert Hall. We now wait for the outcome, announced in August, but fingers crossed!
