Students from America's Dover High School in New Hampshire have been playing alongside pupils from the Trinity School in Carlisle at Carlisle Cathedral.

Thirty eight students from the New Hampshire school are on a music and culture exchange tri, and are practising ahead of a free concert tonight.

Next April pupils from Trinity will head across the Atlantic to see how the schools teach music differently.
