A group of 60 young musicians from schools across Camden have toured one of Germany’s most famous cities.
Pupils from nearly every Camden secondary school came together for a tour of Stuttgart on July 25, performing in four different concerts over the course of the six-day trip.
The touring group, comprised of the Camden Concert Band and the Camden Youth Orchestra, brought together musicians ranging in age, from Year 7 to Year 13.
It is one of a number of foreign tours organised by Camden Music Service, a council-run service under threat from government funding cuts.
Deborah Rees, deputy head of the service, said: “The tour was hugely enjoyable and very successful. The kids gained experience of performing and setting up for a concert very fast.

“It’s one of the things which would be very hard to afford if we had to cut back the service.
“It would be terrible because it’s such a great opportunity for kids, it’s a life experience that they will always remember. It would be shameful if we couldn’t do it any more in Camden.”
