The Next Generation of Marching Band

From a green witch on a yellow brick road, to America’s founding fathers, the Concord 2017 production takes you along an exciting journey along the red carpet, celebrating the best of Broadway musicals. Whether you’re 5, 55, or even 105, this spectacular and energetic show, performed by some of the city’s most talented young musicians, is sure to have you on the edge of your seat right from start to finish.

Since the formation of Concord Youth Music back in 1984, the band has been anything but ordinary. Always looking for new and exciting ways to reinvent and modernise the traditional concept of the marching band, Concord swapped the muddy football fields for the bright lights of the stage in 2008, performing annual musical theatre shows combining brass and theatrics into a single lively act. Today, Concord is famous for its unusual and ‘out there’ musical formats, blending traditionally distinct areas of the arts into a whole new craft. The annual theatre performance is one of the most exciting calendar events for the group, adding a visual drama aspect to their music and allowing them to explore the musical arts further while challenging themselves.

This year, the flags will be flying at Sheffield’s The Montgomery, located in the heart of the city. The Montgomery is renowned for its dedication to improving access to the arts for children and teens, making it the ideal venue for Concord’s 2017 family-friendly performance.

This is a community production.

Please note there is no disabled access at The Montgomery.

Running time: About 1 hour and 45 minutes (including a 15 minute interval)

Presented by Concord Youth
