From Green Street Green Primary School
22 March 2018 Thank you so much for holding the Festival of Music.
I have been taking part in the 'prom' since 1996 and I think that the Festival of Music was the most enjoyable for teachers and children. Certainly, the children at Green Street Green loved the concert, both as participants and spectators.
As a teacher the Churchill Theatre provided an easier venue as it was accessible via public transport. The length of the rehearsal day and concert were shorter and easier to manage. I enjoyed the shorter concert but felt it could of perhaps being a little longer. I thought it was lovely for the massed choirs to start and finish the evening as well. Bravo!
However, nothing more impresses me than the whole of the BYMT staff. Everyone was so helpful and willing to please at all times. They made the whole experience effortless and a joy.
Please do pass my thanks and congratulations to everyone.
23 February 2018 I have recently received my copy of the CD of the above concert. It really is a joy to listen to and makes me realise how lucky we are as grandparents to have family living in the Bromley area. Without that our grandson would not have had the benefit of such excellent tuition and experience which hopefully will lead to even better things when he moves on later this year. Despite that we will be happy to continue our support as patrons of BYMT as it must continue to provide such excellent service to the community.
I lent the CD to a friend who provides a report for the local paper of the events of the local music society, and I thought you would like to see his comments :-
" I have just finished listening to a CD of your memorable concert of 2 July 2017. I must say I was amazed at the standard of playing particularly in Tchaikovsky’s very demanding Pathétique Symphony.
You must be very proud of your young players. I only wish Chipping Sodbury Town Hall was big enough to accommodate you all for a future concert.
With very best wishes
Chipping Sodbury Music Society."
14 November 2017 What an amazing weekend of music! Big thanks to you, Mr Rowe and everyone involved starting with the brass performance masterclass on Friday, Saturday band rehearsals (pretty much all day I think for my three), a fabulous BYCB/XBY concert at Ravens Wood in the evening, on Sunday a very moving chamber brass group at Beckenham Memorial for Remembrance parade and finishing up at the Southbank Centre later in the day for the London Jazz Festival. What a wonderful experience for our young people (and their parents!). Thank you all for attending and supporting – and Len too, always great to see him. I feel it’s a great privilege for us all to be involved with BYMT – and for me, personally, a real sense that this is all drawing to a close too fast!!
from Pickhurst Infant Academy
13 June 2017 INFANT SONG FESTIVAL
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and everyone else that made the Infant Song Festival last week such a success. The Pickhurst children absolutely loved the whole morning. They were buzzing with excitement when we got back to school and they're still talking about it! It's lovely to see them so enthused about music. I only wish I could have brought the whole choir.
