We had an incredible time presenting Live at The Exchange on the 26th June and were delighted to see performers and audience members experiencing live music once again! The event showcased vocalists from secondary schools from in and around Richmond, providing them with the opportunity to perform alongside a professional live band. The evening’s set list featured solo and group performances with songs ranging from Carole King’s Natural Woman to Paramore’s Rose Colored Boy, as well as a number of original songs written by the performers themselves.
We’d like to thank all the performers, parents, band members and the wonderful team at The Exchange for helping us create such a fantastic evening. We look forward to working with The Exchange to continue creating performance opportunities for young musicians in the Borough.
