Chistmas Concert Party! - Stageband and Swing Orchestra

This Christmas, we put the spotlight on the younger members of DYJA. Traditionally, due to a busy programme of pre-Christmas school-based and Music Centre activities, our groups don't get an opportunity to perform in this festive period. So, when this school term is done, come along and join us for a celebratory Concert Party and hear some Christmas music with a difference.

Notes for the band:

It is unusual for us to have next year's Exchange dates confirmed in advance of Christmas like this, but it is intentional. August is the traditional holiday period for many families, so I am informing parents of our plans as soon as possible in the hope of avoiding date clashes. I am delighted that students have already put their names forward for selection, as have several of our voluntary staff members/Registered Chaperones. If there are other members who wish to be considered, pleased contact myself or Brenda Procter asap. No selection has yet been made, so the door is still open! Thank you. John Ellis

DYJA/EKS Herten Exchange (Away Leg). - Swing Orchestra

I am pleased to announce that the dates for our eagerly-anticipated Exchange trip to Herten in Germany have been confirmed as follows: Sunday 16th AUGUST to Sunday 23rd AUGUST 2015! It is particularly pleasing that we are able to visit our German friends in the warm month of August, as we used to in the past.
