SCMT Youth Music Festival 2014

This Summer SCMT added extensively to our Concerts and Competitions timetable and re-named the run of events as the SCMT Youth Music Festival. It was a huge success and we would like like to thank everyone who took part!

There were our usual Summer Concerts and Competitions… AND we added some fun (and very useful) workshops and 1 on 1 sessions which were held during the May half term.

Throughout the SCMT Youth Music Festival we raised £520 for local Brighton charity ‘amaze’. ‘Amaze’ is a fantastic cause that helps support parents and families of children with special needs. Our donation will be going towards the Amaze Helpline (01273 772289) which is often the first point of call when a child is diagnosed with a special need, and is the front door to other Amaze services and impartial information.  So a big thank you from everyone here at SCMT and the people at ‘amaze’  to everyone that has donated we really couldn’t be happier.

We would like to say a special thank you to Ackerman Music for sponsoring our festival…we couldn’t have done it without you!
