This concert is the culmination of the fourth year of the Mozart Millennium Project, inspired and run by BWS, in which compositions by 'A2' and 'AS' level students at New College, Telford, and Thomas Adams School, Wem, will be performed.
The project, supported by the Arts Council of England and the Jane Crawford Memorial Trust, has since its inception been enthusiastically received in North and South Staffordshire and Shropshire. Central to the project is a commissioned work ("Autumn") by Michael Lambert, composing tutor, following from last year's Mozart Millennium Concert in Lichfield Cathedral. The words used come from an original poem written by Ron Scholes, one of the members of BWS.

This concert is supported also by the Jane Crawford Memorial Trust
