YAMSEN:SpeciallyMusic and Wharfedale Festival of Performing Arts collaborate annually on two special events.
The Music Makers Class, held in May, is a non-competitive class open to anyone, and suitable for those with additional needs. Entrants may perform up to five minutes of music, and then receive written comments and a certificate from an adjudicator.
Unfortunately, the May 2020 Music Makers Class has been cancelled due to the coronavirus situation.
The end-of-year concert, Music for a Summer's Day, features YAMSEN:SpeciallyMusic choirs from Leeds, school singing or instrumental ensembles, and collaborative tunes. The concert is usually the first Tuesday in July from 12:45 at King's Hall & Winter Gardens, Ilkley. Please note the 2020 concert is postponed in order to stay safe during the coronavirus pandemic.
