On Thursday 28 June, Chris Maynard, the Head of Hull Music Service, will conduct his final concert at the Hull City Hall after 40 years with the City of Hull Youth Symphony.

Councillor Pete Clark, Portfolio Holder for Learning, Skills and Safeguarding Children, said: “These concerts are the perfect way of bringing children from across the city together to showcase the city’s many talented young musicians and singers who have come so far in their tuition. We are committed to ensure that every child has the opportunity to access a wide range of opportunities to access high-quality tuition to develop their musical skills and creativity but also perform on stage at some incredible venues.”

Tickets cost from £6 to £8, with concessions available. They can be purchased from Hull City Hall booking office .

The Hull Music Service has a strong track record of providing young people with the opportunity to develop their musical skills and provide opportunities for young people of all abilities across the city.

The children have all received whole class tuition on glockenspiels or samba in their schools throughout the year.
