OVER 60 children and adults attended the Marais Ensemble family concert at Potton Lower School as part of the Potton Music Festival 2008.

In a lively programme entitled Tangos, Tutus and Tap, the audience enjoyed a variety of dance music and were introduced to the musical instruments of the Marais Ensemble.

The concert was very informal with lots of audience participation including learning the hand-jive and composing music for an impromptu tap dance!

The aim of the concert was to reach out to young people and encourage musicians and audiences of the future. Alongside this event, the festival weekend included classical music concerts in Cockayne Hatley, Potton and Gamlinglay churches, all of which were enthusiastically received.

In the run-up to the festival, the musicians had also performed at local pre-schools and residential homes, and held music workshops at Potton and Sutton Lower Schools.

Now in its fifth year, the festival is hosted by a world class professional music ensemble and offers local residents the opportunity to hear outstanding musical performances on their doorstep.
