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.
