    This was a superb concert with around 100 young musicians having a really great time performing to their parents and other relatives as well as members of the local community. One of the highlights was the premier performance of a piece of music that had been composed by the lead cellist of the senior orchestra. Fred Moore, in the 1st year 6th of Hanham High School received a tremendous ovation for this composition and how it had been played by the orchestra.
    If there are any young musicians between the ages of 8 and 18 who would like to join the music centre which meets at Marlwood School during term time (12th January 2013 next session) - please come along for a non obligatory session.
