Hamilton Town House was alive with the sound of music as primary school pupils gathered to showcased their talents.
Now in its 5th year, the event celebrates the hard work between pupils, school music departments and the Instrumental Music Service (IMS) which organised the concert which gives pupils the chance to perform in a professional standard venue.
And the pupils relished the opportunity, putting in flawless performances on a range of instruments, including voice.
Councillor Katy Loudon, the chair of the council's Education Resources, who gave the vote of thanks at the end of the concert, said: “The breadth of talent and ability on display was inspirational. From vocalists, to musicians and ensembles, everyone in the packed audience was treated to a musical master class.
“How proud each family and teacher must be of these young people and their commitment to their craft. In fact, this event demonstrated the vital role that instrumental music plays in the development of young people’s creativity and diversity.
“Thanks must also go to the instrumental music team and the teachers who nurture and support the pupils throughout the school year, and prepare them for this truly unique performance.”
