A Day in the Life

Shine the Light Bright

Warwick School choristers and musicians excelled at the Music for Youth Proms at the Royal Albert Hall.

From 6000 entrants in the Music for Youth Festival from all over the British Isles, Warwick School was one of just 30 selected to perform on the last night of the Music for Youth Proms at the Royal Albert Hall.

The spectacular finale to the year of Music for Youth events was over three consecutive nights, each with over 1000 different musicians taking part in a concert like no other; full-scale orchestras showcased side by side with some of the best jazz bands, chamber groups, rock bands and choirs.

The Warwick School choir of 100 boys (conducted by Liz Green, Director of Music, Academic & Choral at Warwick) with Treble solos sung by Thomas Perry and Toby Hawkins,  Sam Young playing the great Albert Hall organ, George Wilkes and Archie Whitby (cellos) and Dan Buxton (soprano saxophone) sang a composition LUX NOXQUE by Sam Young. Every performer had an individual light which shone in the darkness and looked amazing in the Albert Hall.   

Sam, currently in Year 13 at Warwick School, is an incredibly talented musician, composing numerous pieces of music for school performances and was approached by Liz Green to write a piece for the occasion.

The evening culminated in a Finale (Shine the Light Bright) performed together by all 1000 energetic young musicians.

Huge congratulations to the Warwick School choir and all involved on a tremendous achievement and a simply stunning performance.
