Dancing at Sir Jack Lyon Concert Hall!

As far as we know, the recent South High School USA concert was the first time this great venue for classical concerts had audience dancing along to the music. Several of the South High students simply could not resist the funky tunes and accepted the half-jokingly made invitation by the conductor of York Music Forum Big Band to use the empty space previously occupied by the US band. Even the Lord Mayor and Mayoress joined in and the unique evening of international unity ended with a conga line. We’re very grateful to KI Concerts who organised the concert and all the players for helping us raise over £180 for St Nicks.
