The Young Musicians Programme Winter Festival will showcase singing groups such as Quay Voices, folk group Folkestra, jazz band Jambone and youth orchestra Young Sinfonia.
All of the concerts, which take place at Sage Gateshead on Saturday December 10 and Sunday December 11, are free.
Ed Milner, Head of Music Learning at Sage Gateshead, said: “What a fantastic way to spend a weekend, listening to our remarkable young musicians perform in Sage Gateshead’s world-class concert halls.
“The standard is really incredible and we can’t wait to put on two days of music (some of it festive) for anyone who wants to come along or who is interested in joining our Young Musicians Programme.”
As well as performances by youth ensembles, the Winter Festival will also feature musicians who study at Sage Gateshead’s Foundation and Step Up’ programme, which is a Saturday music school for children aged four and upwards. Students aged from nine to 19 who attend the ‘Centre for Advanced Training’ on a Sunday will also take to the stage.
Music performed over the weekend will include Christmas tunes as well as a variety of classical and popular. Jambone will also perform new works written especially for the band by its music director Paul Edis.
