On Thursday 9th December, new starter violin pupils from Belmont CofE Primary school performed for the staff and pupils in their bubble, led by their teacher Chris Hartley. Durham Music Service Strategy Lead Alex Wade came to watch the concert, and presented DMS star certificates to all the performers  

“It was a pleasure to see so many new starters enjoying playing their instruments, and taking pride in their musical achievements. All the pupils looked so smart and professional when they performed, even though they’d been playing such a short amount of time! I really enjoyed hearing them play, and hope they continue to enjoy playing their violins in the future.”
