Liberty is a community-based youth group in Northampton for young people who love music and dance. The group is similar to the music and dance programmes found in high schools all across the USA; a dance, percussion and brass group combine together to produce an annual show. Liberty then perform at competitions held across the UK.
Liberty was founded in 2008 as a non-profit organisation and is run by volunteers, with the support of a professional teaching team, who work closely with the oldest members to create an enjoyable, educational and responsible environment. Since 2008, Liberty have gone on to achieve both local and national success; in 2017, the group were crowned the British Youth Band Association Championship Class winners and are currently placed within the top 15 in the European Music Games.
Liberty does not hold auditions. There is a place at Liberty for every young person, regardless of their level of experience or confidence. No instrument? No worries! Liberty loans every musical member an instrument free of charge.
