YOUNG musicians from Royston took part in a concert in Cambridge last week.

Youth Makes Music, organised by the Royston Rotary Club, was held in the Cambridge University Concert Hall, West Road, Cambridge.

More than 200 students from 11 Royston schools took part.

Ken Charles, chairman of the Rotary Club's youth opportunities committee, said the event was "brilliant, and praised the students and staff involved.

He added: "We are fortunate we have a corps of very committed and dedicated music teachers.

"They bring innovation and creativity to the production, ensuring that the very high standard of performance is achieved."

Royston youth choir, which is formed by youngsters from many schools in the area, sang three songs together, while one of the other highlights was a performance from the joint Meridian and Greneway Djembe collective, who showcased the work they have been doing this term using the African drums.

Rotarian Tim Penn, who attended the concert, said: "I think it is fair to say that we all left with a spring in our step and a song in our hearts.

"This was a truly memorable evening.
