"Residents often ask about children’s wellbeing and mental health, and we know that playing and listening to music can be an excellent way to improve both.

"All Hertfordshire’s children and young people, regardless of background or circumstances, have the opportunity to discover or develop their unique musical voice and express themselves through the language of music. 

"I am really looking forward to meeting you all and enjoying the entertainment together.

"There will be the opportunity to also find out more about the free instrument loans schemes, the help with music tuition fees and the wide variety of lessons that are on offer to all young people in the county.”
