Pupils play in perfect harmony

Pupils play in perfect harmony

30th July 2013


YOUNG musicians from two schools proved to be in perfect harmony when they came together for a summer concert.

Pupils aged from 11-18 from Allertonshire School and Northallerton College performed for family and friends in a collaboration of music and song.

Hosted by the Allertonshire, the event followed a joint Christmas concert held at Northallerton College.

Head of Music for both schools Adrian Bramley said: “We enjoy very close links and these two annual concerts are great opportunities for all our musicians and singers to come together.

“All Allertonshire pupils have music lessons once a week and we offer both GCSE and A level music at the college.”

Mel Websdale, deputy headteacher at The Allertonshire, added: “Our children absolutely love the opportunity to perform.

“Our feeder primaries are also aware of what we’re doing in music and some of their children have joined our concert while still in Year 5 or 6 before they come here.”

The concert programme included performances by Northallerton College’s jazz ensemble, concert band, jazz orchestra and choir, while Allertonshire School presented its woodwind, singing and flute groups.

College brothers Matthew and Thomas Rhodes also performed.
