LANDSCORE Primary School, in Crediton, held a Spring Concert on Thursday, March 30 as a celebration of the musical life of the school.

Staff and children gave 30 performances during the concert which was held in the new school hall.

The staff band performed and the Landscore singers gave a rendition of a James Bond Medley.

A diverse range of music was performed by staff and children in the concert including; "Puff the Magic Dragon", "Romanze" by Mozart, "Castle on a Cloud" from "Les Miserables", "Skyfall" by Adele, "Let it Be," by The Beatles", "Hound Dog" by Elvis, a German Folk Song", "Landler" by Schubert.

Head teacher Andy Smith said: "Music has the power to make you feel the full range of emotions: it can make you smile, it can make you cry, and it can make you want to sing from the rooftops.

"We are fortunate enough at Landscore to be blessed with talented musicians at both staff and student level and music is at the very heart of what we offer children.

"Whether it is the study and sharing of the Beatles and Jackson 5 in our whole school singing assemblies, children learning brass instruments, children becoming part of Landscore Singers or children receiving high-quality one-to-one music teaching."

Mr Smith thanked Suzie Yates for organising the Landscore Singers, Carolin Van Monfoort for ensuring the children receive a varied musical experience and the school’s peripatetic music teachers; Ben Waring, Annie Quicke, Jane Tipping and Lars Young.
