Friday's performance by talented musicians from Borehamwood's upper and middle schools is being hailed as an outstanding success by organisers.

The school's concert at Allum Hall, Allum Lane, Elstree was organised by Elstree and Borehamwood Rotary Club and involved around 120 students from Hawksmoor and Hillside upper schools and Holmshill, Furzehill and Lyndhurst middle schools.

Rotary's vocational chairman David Clout said a tremendous variety of music was performed from 7.30pm -- including singing, solo trumpet, flute and a lot of modern guitar music.

"It really did bring out the musical talent of the children in the area. I was pleased there was a marvellous atmosphere and to have a full house," he said.

Among the audience were Hertsmere's Deputy Mayor Councillor Joe Goldberg and the Mayor of Elstree and Borehamwood, Councillor Martin Heywood.

Mr Clout said in addition to those performing, around 100 adults and 50 children came along to lend their support to the event.

"The Rotary Club is giving the students the opportunity to perform in an excellent public forum. It is also providing an opportunity for anyone who enjoys music to join the proud parents listening to their children," he added.
