Whitchurch students join open-air orchestra in Shrewsbury

STUDENTS from a Whitchurch school showed their creative side at a county-wide musical concert in Shrewsbury.

The event, held in Shrewsbury Square, saw students from Whitchurch CE Infant and Nursery School join other schools for the show to celebrate the revival of their county ensembles.

Shropshire Music Service hosted the event, which took place at the end of June, which manager Alison Stevens said was a “celebration” of the hard work done after the lockdown.

“Huge thumbs up and thank you to everyone who participated in our performances in the Square,” said Alison.

“The sun was shining, the crowds gathered and our students made us all very proud.

“It was a celebration of the hard work our students and teachers put in during 15 very difficult months.

“This event also celebrated the relaunch of our county sets from September, following closures due to Covid-19 restrictions.

“We presented five different instrument families throughout the morning – brass, guitar, percussion, strings and woodwinds – in their own group performances.

“I am extremely proud of all that has been accomplished under difficult circumstances.

“Creating music in groups has never been more important for well-being, community and musical development.”
