International Music Day takes place every year on the 21st June, mid-summer solstice, with free events to celebrate the universal language of music in over 120 countries and 700 cities around the world.
Head of Curriculum for Music at Walsall College, Alan Tyler, said: “After the success of last year’s event students are very passionate about marking International Music Day again this year and are putting in extra rehearsals before this event to make it even bigger and better.
“The talents of our students is again very impressive this year and we are delighted they have been given this opportunity, with support from the council, to showcase their performance abilities to the public.
“The festival coincides with the end of GCSE and A-level exams, so it will be a great way for students across the borough to celebrate and enjoy some fantastic music from local up and coming artists.”
