Dedicated music pupils of Harby based violin and cello teacher Zosia Cocker will be participating in an exciting summer strings project on Monday, July 4.

Children aged from seven to 18, from schools in Bottesford, Redmile, Harby, Hose, Kinoulton, Long Clawson, St Francis in Melton, Belvoir High School, John Ferneley College, KGGS, The Kings School in Grantham and Toot Hill will meet at Hose Village Hall for an afternoon of music, rehearsals and workshops, culminating with a massed performance for parents friends.

Teacher Zosia said: “Young violinists, viola players and cellists will be playing alongside pupils from other local schools who have all been preparing the same pieces in the run-up to the event.

“This year we are particularly featuring many different styles of dance music from around the world. ailemtThere will be English folk dances to the Locomotion, with a lot more besides.

“For many children it will be their first taste of playing and performing in a larger group.

“I have organised this event to introduce my pupils to the fun and rewards of making music together in a larger group than would be possible just at their own school.

“The children have all worked extremely hard this term to prepare their pieces at home and in their lessons and this will be the time when they see and hear for themselves the results of all their efforts.

“I would like to thank all the schools involved, as well as parents and friends for all their help so far.”
