Young singers and musicians raise the roof at Royal Albert Hall concert

More than 2,000 young singers and musicians from Camden schools and youth orchestras gave a stunning performance at the Royal Albert Hall last night (Monday, 21 March), covering classical, pop, opera and jazz for an audience of parents, friends, school and Council staff.

The 10th Camden Music Festival was compered by Channel 4 newsreader Jon Snow, with a guest appearance by Little Britain star and children’s author David Walliams, who is patron of the Camden Music Trust.

Jon Snow said: “You have joined the ranks of the greatest musicians in the world who have performed in this building. Just about every child in Camden is exposed to a musical instrument during their schooling. Very few local education authorities can claim that.”

The event, held every two years, is run by the Camden Music Trust, the Council’s music service and participating schools.

The Mayor, Councillor Larraine Revah, who opened this year’s concert, said: “This is truly an inspiring event for all.”
