A group of previous members from the music centre’s long and varied history have been rehearsing for the last few months, and the results of their hard work will be available for the whole community to watch in a one-off musical spectacular at Morley Town Hall this Saturday (26 October 2013).

Hundreds of young and not so young people have been through the doors of the music centre since 1973. The centre offers the chance to learn, play and enjoy music in the community. It is currently hosted at Cockburn High School in Beeston and meets every Saturday morning in term time.

The original head of centre Mr. Ken Silver has been working with members past and present to rehearse a programme of orchestral classics, including Bohemian Rhapsody, the Great Gate of Kiev and Hey Jude.

The performers will be joined by some distinguished guests including the Mayor of Morley & the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire as well as several Local Councillors. Also in attendance will be members of a German orchestra the South Leeds Music Centre are linked with.

Tickets are still available and can be purchased on the door for £5 for adults, £3.50 concessions. They can also be reserved by calling 07969 174421, or emailing This price includes a cup of tea at the interval.  The concert starts at 7pm and is expected to finish at 9pm.
