Pupils hit the high notes for a day of musical revelry as part of a Schools Make Music day at the Cromwell Community College.

Young people from the college were joined by students from five local primary schools to spend a day together preparing for a grand concert for parents in the evening.

Supported by Chatteris Rotary Club, the event has been held at the college for years, and is a way to bring musical children together under one roof to celebrate their skills and showcase their talents.

Head of music Corinna Holdaway said: “Rehearsals are held at the individual schools for about a month leading up to today. We then spend the whole day practising and getting it perfect for the concert.

“The aim is to promote young musicians working together.”

The young people perform around 20 songs as well as two massed choir pieces which also involve the school rock band and orchestra.

Roger Peacock, treasurer of Chatteris Rotary, said: “It’s a community idea to promote bringing all the schools together to integrate musically and have a good time.”

Taking part were Glebelands, Lionel Walden, Kingsfield, Manea and Benwick primary schools.
