Pupils play scores of music

MORE than 130 music students spent hours and days refining their talents last week. 

The Bendigo Instrumental Music Program hosted the students over four days at the Bendigo Baptist Church in Junortoun.

BIMP co-coordinator Jane Geddes said it was one of the biggest junior ensembles they had hosted.

“There is 130 students from five schools in Bendigo, so we are really excited with the talent that is coming through,” she said.

“Performers had rehearsals and tutorials with conductors some ex-students before their concert on Thursday night.

“The concert features the work the ensemble has been preparing over four days.

“We are very proud of what they have achieved in this intensive environment.”
