Pupils hit the right notes
MUSICAL youngsters from across Dumbarton, the Vale and Clydebank wowed friends and family at their annual showcase concert.
The 180 younsters are all primary and secondary school pupils.
The concert, which took place at Our Lady and St Patrick's High in Dumbarton on Monday, included performances from the Primary String Group, the String Ensemble, the Training Wind Band and the Senior Wind Band, who took home the Silver Award at the National Concert Bands Festival in London in April.
Seven youngsters from Kilpatrick School also showcased a new piece of music written in conjunction with an associate musician from Drake Music Scotland, an arts organisation that provides music making opportunities for people with disabilities.
Aileen Douthwaite, education support officer said: "It was great to see so many young people really enjoy their music making, and playing such a variety of music, everything from Vivaldi to Lady Gaga as well as a brand new piece of music called "Toys" performed by the very talented Primary 6 and 7 pupils from Kilpatrick School."
Councillor Patrick McGlinchey, convener of Educational Services, added: "Monday night's concert showcased the spectacular talent, hard work and ability of our pupils, both primary and secondary. It was an enjoyable evening for all, and I hope that the young people will continue to develop their skills."
