The MAWS concert featured schoolchildren from across North Somerset


SONGS from the musicals were delivered by more than 600 North Somerset schoolchildren at the Music Association of Woodspring Schools (MAWS) concert at Bristol’s Colston Hall.

Dancers, a guitar ensemble, wind band and string orchestra joined a 350-strong choir to entertain an appreciative audience with a variety of numbers ranging from Food Glorious Food and Pick a Pocket or Two, to Over the Rainbow and Greased Lightning.

Prepared by North Somerset Music Service, it was the 38th year the MAWS concert has taken place.

A concert spokesman said: “It is a model of inter-school co-operation, where the pooling of talents of children and staff leads to a very enjoyable evening for everyone.”

It was the result of months of hard work by staff and pupils and was well worth all the effort according to everyone involved.
