The Friendship Concert took place on March 22nd when the Maghull Wind Orchestra from Merseyside, visited Archbishop Beck College. They were the guests of the college at a special Friendship Concert which featured the main college concert band, primary school bands and smaller ensembles.
All groups performed separately, entertaining each other before joining together for the final performance of "Game of Thrones" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" which both ensembles had prepared. It sounded fantastic!
The concert also saw the performance of the BASBWE commissioned work for Band called "Voyage of Valour" by Adam Roberts.
Speaking after the event Phil Shotton, Director of the Maghull Wind Orchestra said, "this was a wonderful example of how the community and educational world of music collaborated to produced and outstanding evening of music making" adding, "the Liverpool premier of a commissioned work for wind band made the evening even more special."
