Olympic Torch Relay Event

York Music Service adult drumming group, Calabash – joined by the young people’s group, UMBU from York Arts Academy - were delighted to be invited to take one of only two performance slots offered to local groups at the Olympic Torch Relay event on the Knavesmire on June 19th.

In front of a crowd in excess of 27,000, they performed ‘Olympic Flame’, apiece specially written for the event by the group’s leader, Jon Ward.

It was a fantastic performance, and a truly memorable occasion for all of the performers.
