Make More Music in Derby is an exciting and successful project which provides music tuition to over a thousand pupils in the city.

Cllr Sarah Russell, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said:

The Make More Music concert with the Halle Orchestra at Derby Arena has given the pupils the chance to perform in front of a huge audience and I’m sure all of the young people had a fantastic day. The remarkable Hallé orchestra set a great example for the young people and I hope they have inspired a number of the youngsters to continue playing their instruments in the years to come.”
