Music Centre November 2019 Concerts

Many thanks for all your support of North Tyneside Music Centre this term; I would also like to thank all our musicians on their hard work, dedication and participation. I hope they have enjoyed the term and we look forward to them returning in the New Year.

Please see below information regarding the concerts; do get in touch with either myself or a member of staff if you have any queries. Please note: it is important that performers arrive in good time before the concert; preferably half an hour before the start so that staff can help tune instruments and confirm seating arrangements for the performers. However, if specific instructions have been provided by your child’s conductor please follow those instead. It is of real importance that all Music Centre performers support one another so when your child is not performing it is expected they will stay in the auditorium to be part of the audience for their fellow musicians. Please see below for each group’s dress code:
