The High School of Dundee was delighted to welcome around 120 pupils from the city’s secondary schools to join just under 50 of its own young musicians for a joint Wind/Brass/Percussion day.

The event saw the pupils rehearse Ozzy Osborne's “Crazy Train”, Neil Diamond's “Sweet Caroline”, Mark Lortz's “Aspire”, and Lin-Manuel Miranda's “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” from the film “Encanto”, before video recording a fantastic performance together.

Director of Music, Lionel Steuart Fothringham and Phil McGregor, Education Support Officer for Music at Dundee City Council, said, “This has been a wonderful opportunity to bring together 170 pupils and music staff from across Dundee to share in the excitement of making music.

“As very recent national events have demonstrated, music has the power to unite us all, and the pupils have enjoyed making new friends among their fellow musicians. This is the first such event we’ve had at the High School for a long time, and we hope it will be one of many in the years ahead.”
