Schoolchildren from around the region joined choristers from Durham Cathedral today as part of the Cathedral's Music Outreach Programme.
The programme brings children from eight schools around the region to work with the choristers every term, culminating in three large concerts for friends, families and the local community.
"We hope the children and their families all enjoy this wonderful occasion, which they have all worked so hard with their schools to prepare for.
We really value the long standing partnership we have with Durham Cathedral through this Music Outreach Programme. It not only provides our schools with the opportunity to learn musical skills and develop musical talent alongside the choristers, but also to perform in front of friends and family in historic and hallowed surroundings."
The schools taking part in today's concert were:
- Barnwell Primary
- Dubmire Primary
- Easington Lane Primary
- Redby Primary
- St Cuthbert's RC Primary
- Usworth Colliery Primary
- Wessington Primary
- Willowfields Primary
