Speaking at Thursday’s full council meeting, the cabinet member for culture and leisure, described the concert as the “greatest thing in this borough for a year”.

The Albert Hall concert, on March 18, saw more than 1800 schoolchildren involved in the concert from across Redbridge.

Cllr Ryan said: “Every single person should be extremely proud of themselves.

“I think that is the best concert I have been to.

“It was a magnificent festival - it was probably the greatest thing in this borough for a year.”

Cllr Ryan’s praise came on the same night as she confirmed Redbridge Music Service will be able to continue to provide 8,000 young people with weekly instrumental and vocal tuition.
