Plucky pupils band together

Date published: 01 April 2011

YOUNGSTERS from two Oldham primary schools made sweet music when they performed at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.

The pupils from Whitegate End, in Chadderton and Horton Mill, in Oldham, played in a guitar session with 150 schoolchildren from across Greater Manchester and a small ensemble of professional musicians. The children are learning to play guitar through Wider Opportunities free lessons in school, paid for by Government, and have enjoyed workshops this term in which they have created and learned new compositions.
