Year 7 Shirebrook Academy pupil Paige Hymas, is pictured here preparing to perform with fellow students alongside the Manchester Camerata orchestra.

A group of young musicians from Shirebrook Academy, Common Lane, rubbed shoulders with some of the country’s finest musical talents when they joined the renowned chamber orchestra for a one-off concert in the school’s atrium.

The event took place as part of the orchestra’s 4 Stages mini-tour, which also took in Eckington School, Sutton Community School and Mansfield Create Theatre.

Adam Case, head of music at the school, said he hopes the experience will inspire the pupils to explore, and hopefully develop a love for classical music.
