Talented young musicians pulled out all the stops to put on an impressive performance for family and friends, at Hose Village Hall.
Violins in the Vale, organised by Harby-based music teacher Zosia Cocker, involved about 60 children aged 7-18 from schools across the Melton borough and beyond.
An afternoon of music rehearsals and workshops finished with a massed performance for parents and friends. Young violinists, viola players and cellists played alongside pupils from other local schools.
Mrs Cocker said: “All the musicians put on a magnificent concert with pieces ranging from Harry Potter to Frozen. A collection raised £114 for Dove Cottage Day Hospice, in Stathern, so thank you to everyone.”
