Anyone who has been to see Hot Aire! Concert Band (or its junior section, Fresh Aire) may have been lucky enough to watch the amazing Andrew in action. Andrew is a young man with Down Syndrome who conducts selected pieces with skill and energy. Andrew’s passion for music shines from his conducting which means that it is a pleasure to play for him. Here is Andrew conducting Choral and Rockout by Ted Huggens.
Today I would like to support Down Syndrome Training & Support Service Ltd, a local charity which is run by and for parents and carers of children with Down Syndrome. As well as offering support to parents/carers the charity also provides training for professionals and a youth club for young people with Down Syndrome.
