Talented young musicians from five schools put on a special performance for friends, family and funders to mark the end of a special journey.

The pupils from Quadring Cowley and Browns, Gosberton Clough and Risegate and Bourne Westfield primary schools joined forces with students from two Grantham secondary schools at Spalding’s South Holland Centre.

It was the first time the children had come together after taking part in special percussion workshops with drumming guru Pat Garvey at three of the schools.

The project – called Rhythmic Routes – was funded by Youth Music and South Holland District Council.

Project manager Liz Lenton, of the Scarlet Community Music Club in Gosberton Risegate, said: “It was a wonderful project all about talent and progression and, although not all children were drummers at the start, they were all picked for their natural musical talent.”

As well as the Rhythmic Routes peformance, Pat Garvey and Choir Vibe also performed.
