European flavour to schools’ concert

A BOSTON school is to play host to an international music project which will include 120 young people from five different countries.

Boston Grammar Schools Federation pupils will be joined by five bands from Germany, Holland and Austria and two editors from Cyprus, who will be staying at Caythorpe House, Donington, between March 25-29.

It is part of a project call the United School Band project which is itself part of the EU-funded Comenius project aiming to enable pupils to travel across Europe and experience life in other countries.

It is also supported by Lincolnshire Music Services.

More than 80 foreign visitors will be staying at Caythorpe House, where they will be rehearsing on Sunday, together with musicians from Boston Grammar Schools Federation. Pupils will also be attending music workshops including one by former Status Quo drummer Jeff Rich.

On Monday and Tuesday, March 28 and 29, there will be four concerts during school hours which will be attended by pupils from local primary schools.

Then on the Monday from 7.30pm there will be a concert involving the Boston Youth Jazz Orchestra which will be open to the wider public.

Tickets cost £3 adult, £1 child with 50 per cent of the proceeds going to charity.

Boston Grammar School and High School pupils have already been to Austria and Germany and will be travelling to Holland in the future.
