A MUSIC hub which celebrates the talents of Barnsley students has launched at the college.

Over 200 musicians have already taken to the stage to showcase their skills.

Groups performing included 70 members of Barnsley Youth Choir, Barnsley Folk Ensemble, Silkstone Common Strings and Barnsley Town Concert Band. Musicians from Barnsley College, Opus Music and Rhythm Inc also played.

The youngest musicians were aged just seven.

Music Hub spokesman Helen Ball said: “The launch event was a fantastic evening. It showcased the amazing talent we have in Barnsley and also the excellence of Barnsley College in their role as host venue.”

Barnsley Central MP Dan Jarvis and Barnsley’s Mayor Dorothy Higginbottom were special guests at the concert.
