Headteacher Paul Carpenter said:
The music lessons delivered by our music tutor Mr Bateson have had a very positive impact on our students who have shown real dedication to learning their instruments. The performances in which they have been involved at school have really helped to develop confidence and the fact that they feel keen to perform in the town centre is testament to how far they have come.”
Music tutor Mark Bateson, of Darwen Music School said:
The students have shown real commitment to learning and practising the songs and are looking forward to the performance. We welcome people coming along to enjoy the show on the day.”
