Hundreds of schoolchildren have been given the chance to perform alongside a prima ballerina as part of a project to foster a love of classical music.
Respected conductor and violinist Thomas Kemp and other musicians held workshops for around 800 local primary pupils at 15 schools in and around West Malling in the lead up to the Music@Malling Festival.
The end result was three performances of The Soldier's Tale, composed by Stravinsky in 1918. Dancing to the music, was a very special guest - Lead Principal with the English National Ballet, Erina Takahashi.
Pupils also played music they'd composed themselves in the workshops. Other children from schools around the region turned out to listen, and were captivated by the performances.

Two men have been arrested after an armed robbery at a jewellers in West Malling, Kent.
Kent Police were called at 1.30pm on Friday, August 9 to a report of an armed robbery in progress at Andrew Smith Jewellers in the High Street.
The two men entered the store armed with an axe and stole a large amount of jewellery.
The men made off in a blue Peugeot 106, which was driven by a third man who waited outside the car.
On August 11, the two men aged 27 and 29 were arrested on suspicion of robbery. They have since been released on bail until October 21.
The High Street was quite busy at the time of the robbery, and we have spoken to a number of witnesses who have given us very useful information. I’m sure there are some more people out there who saw what happened though, and it would be great to hear from them."
