Kind-hearted young musicians took time out from their school summer holidays - to play to residents at a nursing home.

The youngsters from Trafford Music Service (TMS) delighted residents at Wyncourt Court Nursing Home in Timperley with their musical brilliance.
 
They cheered and applauded as the students treated them to a special concert featuring a whole host of instruments.
 

 Sue Mattinson, Wyncourt Nursing Home General Manager, said:

 

Our residents thoroughly enjoyed listening and watching the children’s performance. Not only was it a wonderful concert, but we believe that this kind of project really has a positive impact on the health and well-being of the people we look after.  We can’t wait to hear them again and we can’t thank them enough.”

The event was part of a special project called Music Kindness Week where more than 100 children from TMS perform to sectors of the community that can’t readily attend performances in concert venues. Youngsters have also performed at The Square Shopping Centre in Sale Town Centre and Four Oaks Care Home in Partington. 
 
Head of Trafford Music Service, Ruth O’Keefe, said:

At Trafford Music Service we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy and play music.  We’re very proud of our young musicians and we really enjoyed performing to organisations in Trafford neighbourhoods.   We’d really welcome community organisations in Trafford to get in touch with us if they would like one of our choirs, orchestras or bands to come and visit them.  You can get in touch by emailing music.service@trafford.gov.uk"

Trafford Music Service delivers thousands of musical instrument lessons in schools and at its base at The Claremont Centre in Sale town centre with highly expert teachers.  It also teaches whole class music instrument classes and offers over 40 music ensemble opportunities, such as choirs, orchestras, bands, and guitar groups for school children.
