Young virtuosos took to a stage to put on “brilliant” performances yesterday afternoon.
Pupils at Eastcourt Independent School, Eastwood Road, Goodmayes, blew audiences away after getting through auditions for the school’s annual music recital.
The afternoon of music featured the school’s most talented pianists, violinists, guitarists and recorder groups.
Eastcourt’s choir kicked off the event with I Have a Dream, Over the Rainbow, and The Skye Boat Song.
“It was really good, it was brilliant,” said teacher Mike Bell.
