Children from Little Horsted Primary School playing the Tenor Horn.

Little Horsted Primary School children play tenor horn at festival

Little Horsted Primary School children were among 800 youngsters from across the county to showcase their musical talent at a festival organised by East Sussex Music.

Year 5 pupils from Little Horsted have been learning to play the tenor horn with Christina Kearley, East Sussex Music Brass Teacher.

The children were among those from 17 schools involved in the First Access Festival. A mix of music from tenor horns, to recorders and ukuleles was performed for packed audiences at Lewes Town Hall and Eastbourne Kings Centre.

As well as the concert, children taking part in the festivals on Thursday, March 8 and Friday, March 9, took part in a stomp-style body percussion and singing workshop.

A-Level students from the East Sussex Academy of Music also attended the events to share inspirational recitals and encourage children to take part in a Learn to Play Day at Eastbourne Music Centre, where they were able to try out a host of instruments from cello to piccolo.
