A partnership of key local & regional music organisations, working together to create, develop and maintain co-ordinated, high quality music education for children & young people, in and out of school.
"Ok... so audition pieces are now ready. We know a week isn't much time to get your head round them but it's good practice as we only have two weeks to put the whole show together. The show is very fast paced and as ever we will use company as much as we can throughout. The main parts we will be auditioning are: Felicia - dialogue and song Colored Woman Huey - dialogue and song Music of My Soul Delray - dialogue and song Underground Gladys - dialogue and song Change don't come Easy
There are also three smaller male parts that have vocal auditions: Wailin Joe - song scratch my itch Gator - say a prayer Bobby - big love
There are then lots of smaller male and female speaking parts throughout the show, as well as singing parts in the numbers so as generic auditions to be considered for these there is a scene with Simmons and Buck Wiley we'd like to hear you read or to sing a bit of Steal Your Rock and Roll - these will workshop on the Sunday morning.
Please message me or comment below and I will send you the relevant bits of dialogue and sheet music for whichever part you are interested in.
P.s new members please prepare a musical theatre song for your company audition at 10am" ...
Feel free to share and tag in anyone you know who may be interested. WYMT need people to work on costumes, make-up, stage and props as well as cast for their show. Auditions are at Music School and the show will be at the Arena in the first week in September.

Keith Sedgebeer Celebration Evening - Sunday 16th July
This summer will see Keith Sedgebeer's last tour with Music School as he steps down from his role as conductor of Youth Orchestra. We would like to invite past members to come together with Music Service staff and Keith Sedgebeer to help us celebrate the enormous contribution he has made over the last 35 years. Current Music School members will have the chance to celebrate with Keith at the pre-tour concert and on tour but we also wanted to give past members and parents the opportunity to come together to say thank you to Keith.
Our Celebration Evening will take place at The Lighthouse in Wolverhampton (the old Chubb building) between 4.30 p.m. and 8 p.m. with presentations and speeches taking place at 6 p.m. Places will be limited so we advise that you book your place early by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are able to come, we will be providing a performance area with a mic and a piano and would encourage that you get together with old friends to offer a musical item for the proceedings. Details of the musical ensemble and the length of piece(s) also need to be emailed to music.school and we would hope that this will give you all the opportunity to dust off your instruments and rekindle the musical opportunities that you enjoyed whilst at Music School.
If you are not able to come but would like to send a message for Mr S, please email them to us well in advance and we will pass them on to him.
We would also like past members of Youth Orchestra to send us photos which may be displayed during the evening. Please email them to email@example.com, including information about the year they were taken, the location and the names of those on the photo (if possible).
The Lighthouse bar will be open and there will be a smart dress code. Parking near to the venue is widely available with the nearest car parks being at the bottom of Broad Street, the NCP opposite The Lighthouse and at Piper's Row. ...
