Westmorland Youth Orchestra has received £1,000 from the Province of Cumberland & Westmorland

The cheque was presented to director of music Fredrik Holm by Provincial Grand Master Norman Thompson at a concert at Queen Elizabeth School in Kirkby Lonsdale.

The hall was full to hear the 60 gifted young musicians. Classical and contemporary pieces performed ranged from ‘Danse Macabre’ by Saint-Saëns to ‘Viva la Vida’ by Coldplay and George Gershwin’s ‘An American in Paris’.

Norman said the cheque was the first of five annual £1,000 gifts to help the orchestra’s players reach their fullest potential.
