Youngsters had the chance to watch and learn from some of the country’s leading musicians when the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra visited Bridlington at the weekend.
They held a workshop for families and then gave a performance at The Spa the following day. June Mitchell, East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s community arts officer, said it was ‘an overwhelming success’.
She said: “They were both amazing opportunities for young people - and their families - to work with, and listen to, this prestigious orchestra, and we were honoured and delighted to be able to bring them to the town.
“The Music Box was a unique chance to try out musical instruments under expert guidance. The following day, it was inspiring to see the Spa full to the rafters for the concert, against such a sparkling backdrop of the sea, for a concert themed about the sea and maritime music.”
