A big “well done” to our cornet player Haydn Osborne on achieving the Silver Arts Award ( Arts equivalent of the Duke of Edinburgh Award). The aim of this qualification is to help individuals develop their skills and confidence in their preferred artform. Haydn, who was supported in achieving this award via his membership of the Yorkshire Youth Band, had to put in around 100 hours of work to complete the required tasks. These included attending events, doing research and organising concerts for the band. Once all the work was completed Haydn had to create and present a portfolio to evidence his knowledge and understanding. Nick Childs himself knocked on the door to present his certificate!
