YOUNG talented musicians have been called forward to perform in the town next summer.
Town councillor Will Richards is behind plans to incorporate younger performers from schools, groups and bands into 2015’s Bands in the Park programme.
The summertime Sunday sessions, which take place in Priory Park around the bandstand, traditionally feature music such as jazz and brass band performers.
And while they will feature as usual next year, the town council is looking into ways to attract a younger audience.
At the moment the idea is to run a trial for a few weeks where youth performers are invited to show off their talents either before or after the traditional acts are on stage.
Coun Richards said he had reached out to a lot of schools and groups.
He added: “There must be plenty of young talented musicians in Malvern. It is often felt there is not enough for young people to do in the town and this would be something for them throughout the summer.
“Whereas elderly people have jazz and brass bands, young people may be drawn to young talented musicians whether it is a single pianist or a pop band.
“But it will be a two-way thing giving youngsters a chance to showcase their talent. I have always felt there should be a Malvern’s Got Talent type of event in the town and this could be the start of it.”
