The Coopers Company and Coborn School in St Mary’s Lane, Upminster, hosted a Music for Youth Festival.

Director of Music Jan Bristow organised the day which featured youngsters performing several different genres and styles of music performed by youngsters for ten minutes each.

It featured choirs, bands, orchestras, vocalists and jazz artists, with 11 schools in total taking part.

Mrs Bristow said: “It was a fantastic day. Having other local schools take part meant that friendships between communities could be refreshed and revisited.

She added: “It was a great time for the little ones.”

Two adjudicators from the national Music for Youth charity attended to enjoy the local talent and pick hopefuls for future national events.
