A JAZZY concert for families is planned to entertain the crowds at Easter.
Concertini, a Berkshire-based company that produces live music events for children and adults, is hosting two small concerts this spring.
And the show will feature CBeebies’ YolanDa’s Band Jam, Yolanda Brown, for its next performance at Norden Farm on April 12.

Maidenhead Arts Center will welcome the public to its Courtyard Theater for a fusion of reggae, jazz and soul music.
After two difficult years of live events, Concertini, led by mother-of-two and musician, Julia Bentley Dawkes, is now entering its seventh year.
Julia said: “It’s going to be amazing to welcome Yolanda, we’ve been waiting 2 years after she was canceled due to Covid restrictions.
“We can’t wait to see the reaction from the public and we’re sure it will be an opportunity for many young people to see someone they really looked up to on TV, live on stage in Maidenhead, we feel very lucky.”

Julia added that she missed creating a “fun and inclusive environment” for families to enjoy live music.
“We know from first-hand experience that young people have really missed the mark by not being in a community setting and feeling empowered to speak out,” she said.
“So our mission is to reach as many families as possible this year! We don’t want anyone to miss the pure excitement of live music.
Performances will take place at 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.
