Over 100 local primary school pupils have performed with professional musicians at Derby Guildhall as part of the Make More Music scheme in Derby.

The pupils performed an array of songs from ‘King of the Swingers’ and ‘Down in New Orleans’ alongside the Happy Valley Dixieland Jazz Band who performed a number of solos. Several of the young people were able to join the band on the stage to perform alongside them.

Make More Music is an exciting and successful project which provides music tuition to over 1000 primary school pupils in city schools.

The schools which performed at the Guildhall were Allenton Community Primary School and Hardwick Primary School.
