Pupils benefit from musical hubs
MUSIC services in North Somerset are to be improved thanks to a Government cash injection.
The authority was one of 122 successful bidders for cash from the Arts Council to create music education hubs.
The hub will provide lessons, bands, choirs, orchestras and other music-making opportunities in and out of school for children.
The funding will also allow the authority's music service to develop opportunities for young people by working with a host of organisations, including Trinity College in London, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Bristol Choral Society.

North Somerset music service manager Mark Trego, pictured, said: "Being selected through a competitive process, to lead forward the Government's aspirations for music education in North Somerset is a strong endorsement of the work of the music service team.
"I'm sure the quality and range of work we already do, from providing professional development for school teachers, teaching singing and instruments, running bands and orchestras as well us hosting events for schools provides us with a strong base upon which to build."
The hub will be launched when the new school year starts in September.
