Pupils in year 6 at Waverley, Hexthorpe and Atlas Primary schools who will be transitioning to Woodfields in September have been given complimentary tickets to attend a concert by the Doncaster Concert Band this Thursday, April 18, at 7.30pm in the main hall of Astrea Academy Woodfields.

The audience will be treated to an evening of music on the theme of ‘Heroes and Villains’, with performances of music from Aladdin, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Indiana Jones and much more.

It is not unusual for Doncaster Concert Band to support and serve the local community. This year the band celebrated their 30th anniversary at The Cast Theatre and all proceeds from the concert were given to the William Appleby Memorial Trust which supports the advancement of music education for young musicians within the Doncaster area.

Woodfields Academy will continue their musical theme later this year as incoming students to year 7 in September will all benefit from learning an instrument, through the Music in Secondary School Trust scheme (MISST). Many pupils from Waverley, Hexthorpe and Atlas Academies will be joining Woodfields at the start of this exciting new musical adventure.

David Scales, principal at Woodfields Academy said: “We are really looking forward to hearing the Doncaster Concert Band this Thursday. I am confident that the performance will inspire our new students to see just how rewarding and fulfilling playing an instrument can be. I am looking forward to welcoming them and our MISST instruments next term.”
