Showcase of Musical Talent Success!

On the evening of Saturday 12th March, Hodnet 2000 Educational Trust hosted a ‘Showcase of Musical Talent’ at the Lyon Hall, Hodnet. The show featured young people from around the local area, including many students from the Thomas Adams School, Wem. The audience were treated to performances from the school’s senior choir, various instrumental soloists and a variety of other vocal acts. There were also performances by students from the Grove School at Market Drayton. Many of the audience members commented on how professional the performers were and that they were pleasantly surprised to see so many talented young people giving up their time to support a local charity.
Hodnet 2000 Educational Trust was started at the turn of the millennium to support young people under the age of 25 from the parish of Hodnet, Weston under Redcastle and Peplow with their education, training and development. Despite being in existence for 11 years it was felt that many local people were unaware of what the Trust had to offer so the event was arranged to improve the profile of the charity and showcase the abilities of local young people. The comments from the audience suggest that the event has been successful in this respect.
The trustees of the charity noted that it would not have been possible to stage the event without the extensive support of the music departments of both the Thomas Adams School and the Grove School.
