MORE than 100 young musicians gathered for the 14th annual Wind Band Day in Ely.

Students from schools across the region gathered at Ely's King's School and brought flutes, oboes, clarinets, cornets, saxophones, trumpets and percussion instruments.

Youngsters came from St Mary's Primary Schools in Ely and other preparatory and primary schools in Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex.

They used the state-of-the-art Gibson Music School for group rehearsal sessions, before joining together in a concert for family and friends at King's Hayward Theatre.

Neil Porter-Thaw, King's director or music and organiser of Wind Band Day, said: "Many of the children who joined us seldom get the opportunity to perform in large groups. The day was an enjoyable and rewarding experience for everyone involved.
