Due to Covid-19 our 5th anniversary ‘Ovation Rock Show’, due to be held at the Chichester Festival Theatre, cannot now go ahead in Spring ‘21. This is a huge blow for the many children and young people involved, as well as for our dedicated team of music teachers and young volunteers.
What are we doing about it? Well, it’s important to keep everyone engaged in a positive and creative way, so we’ve decided to make a movie! This will feature personal stories, live footage, and great music, as well as send a message from the next generation about the importance of music in all our lives!
Now more than ever wellbeing and positive mental health in children and young people is paramount, and although we have lost ground and been hit hard by the closures of our rehearsal spaces, musical activities and live performances, we are still very much alive and kicking (albeit virtually!)!
Thanks to recent Sponsorship and additional private donations totalling £4000, we have achieved our fundraising target of £5000. 100% of all money raised will go directly towards the costs of producing this unique film.
The film will be screened at Chichester New Park Cinema in the Spring and will also be available on DVD.
