A SCHOOL has played host to a regional music festival for more than 400 pupils.

Rhosnesni High School hosted the annual regional Music for Youth Festival and opened its doors to hundreds of pupils from Wrexham schools, as well as schools from Crewe, Neston, Burton, Shavington and Porthywaen.

The event saw high quality performances enjoyed by parents and guest music mentors Joanna Mangona and Tony Harris.

Nic Harrison, acting headteacher at Rhosnesni High School, said: “It has been a real pleasure to welcome young people from across Wales and the UK to a event such as this, where there is an opportunity for pupils from Ysgol Rhosnesni and local schools to perform together and experience musical performances by talented young people from other schools. This is an annual event and we were proud to be the host school once again.”

Kevin Whitley, subject leader for music at the school, said: “The standard was higher than ever this year and the numbers of pupils involved was also greater than ever.”

Musicians from Rhosnesni High performed as part of the Wrexham County Wind Band, Senior Wind Band, Wrexham Strings, Wrexham Brass and Wrexham County Choir.
