Young musicians from around the Shelley area have just returned from an exchange visit to Kirklees’ Twin Town, Bergkamen, in Germany.
Forty members of Shelley Music Centre entertained audiences of schoolchildren and performed at packed out venues during their week-long trip to the German town, close to Dortmund.
Trudy Mansfield, leader at Shelley Music Centre and teacher with Kirklees Music School, said: “All the students loved the experience of staying with families and making friends with the German Orchestra who will visit Shelley next November.”
Shelley Music Centre is holding an open morning at Shelley College on Saturday from 8.30am to 12.15pm for anyone interested in joining or learning to play a musical instrument.
