The Spirit of Music Festival: Youth Concert

A free concert featuring SOS From the Kids (semi-finalists in ‘Britain’s Got Talent’), Petersfield Area Schools String Orchestra and outstanding young soloists from our area. PLUS the Snail’s Progress Gamelan bus workshops at 1:30pm and 2:30pm. Come and play the exotic, mystical, meditative music from the beautiful Indonesian islands. Suitable for all ages.

If you’d like to inspire your children to do more music, this is the event to come to!
​Free entry – retiring collection.


SOS from the Kids will be performing their songs about the environment which have been shared in schools and youth groups all around the world.

In addition, we will have the travelling Gamelan Bus Snail’s Progress from 1:30pm. You may know that the Gamelan (from Indonesia) is a collection of tuned percussion instruments and gongs, etc., which requires a number of people to play it – like a mini percussion orchestra. This one is open to everyone (yes, it’s all free) and there will be someone to show you what to do. A really fun activity for children and grown-ups alike. Did you know that Ravel was inspired by the Gamelan? Do come along and have a go before the concert (also free) begins at 3:30pm. Satisfaction is guaranteed!

In the concert, you can also hear PASSO and some outstanding young soloists from our area.

We look forward to welcoming you, as you support and inspire these young musicians.
