Music School Concert 

Carterton Lions are delighted to be able to host the Witney Area Music School concerts at the Carterton Community Centre each year.

West Oxfordshire has certainly got talent and each June around eighty musical youngsters – ages ranging from 12 to 18 – perform a wide variety of pieces, ranging from classical, through “standards”, right up to date with rock and pop on the programme.    This is the culmination of a year of attendance each Saturday at the music school in Witney – run by the Oxfordshire County Council music service.  Here they are under professional guidance to improve and learn the joys of playing in a full orchestra or a small group or band.

The Community Centre is an ideal venue; good acoustics enhance the music.  A large stage allows maximum visibility for proud parents as well as the whole audience.   Excellent sound-proofing allows those not performing to relax or practice in the adjacent rooms.    The Lions are able to provide refreshments before the event as well as during the interval – and there is plenty of room to host a raffle and advertising for other events too.
