MORE than 100 children from schools across Suffolk took part in a special music day in Ipswich.

The event was held at St Joseph's College in Ipswich and involved 140 children from the college, St Marks Catholic Primary School in Ipswich, Moreton Hall Preparatory School in Bury St Edmunds and Amberfield School in Ipswich.

Youngsters from years four to six took part in a variety of workshops where they learnt new music from classical to cartoon theme tunes.

A spokeswoman for St Joseph's College said: “We had violinists, saxophonists and flute players. The whole group got together in the auditorium to play some of the pieces. We had all types of music - even the Flintstones theme tune.

“The children really enjoyed it and it was nice to see different styles of teaching. This is the first music day involving other schools and it's something we would very much like to do again.”

The event culminated in a concert in the chapel to highlight the day's work.
