Pupils and a brass band have been preparing for their annual concert and took part in a musical workshop with an award-winning musical ensemble. 

After the Music Man Project, which is based in Southend, finished touring with His Majesty’s Royal Marines Band, the award-winning project held a day workshop with the pupils of Chase Lane Primary School and Nursery in Dovercourt. 

The Music Man project was founded by the UK’s disability and access ambassador for arts and culture and Churchill Fellow David Stanley BEM. 

The school’s choir is made up of 50 singers and is currently collaborating with the Music Man Project to culminate in a mass performance with Tendring Brass and the Music Man Ambassadors.

The band welcomes members of all ages, with current members ranging from 12 years old up to members in their 80s.
