Festive Concert

We’re celebrating the run up to Christmas by putting on a Festive Concert to showcase the wonderful talent of our ABRSM community: our brilliant students, teachers, and parents.

If you want to take part, please video yourself or your ensemble performing one of the pieces suggested below, email your video to [email protected] by 13 December and you could be in with a chance of appearing in the concert!

How creative can you be?

Everyone can get involved – whatever your age, ability, instrument or vocal style.

You can arrange these pieces so they work for your particular style or ensemble. Use the arrangements below or use them as starting points for your own interpretations. Solo sax, choir, kazoo chorus – we want to hear from you!
