Pupils from Wilby Primary School, near Stradbroke, held a special show after appearing at the Celebration of Schools Music at Snape Maltings.

Wilby’s recently refurbished Coronation Hall provided the perfect setting for the Power of Harmony, arranged by assistant head Roisin Wiseman and brass tutor Ruth Ryan - and accompanied on piano by key stage two teacher Nick Haynes.

After the Snape show, Millie Howard, nine, said: “It was the best thing ever. I loved it.”

Jessie Evans Hendrick, 11, said: “It’s something I’ll never forget”, while Dylan Sadler, eight, called the experience “amazing, wonderful and just magical.”

The Wilby concert was part of the school’s effort to further develop community cohesion.

Older children can learn brass, cello, percussion and guitar at the school, which won a gold ‘Sing up’ award in 2013.
