PUPILS were treated to a first-hand look at a professional orchestra at eight schools.

The New Mozart Orchestra, a professional orchestra conducted by Clive Fairbairn, gave concerts last week at the schools.

Children were introduced to the music and the instruments and encouraged to join in.

The pictures show the musicians at St John's CofE Combined School in Lacey Green and Maltman's Green School in Gerrards Cross.

In our area the orchestra also visited Naphill and Walters Ash School, Bledlow Ridge School and Princes Risborough Primary School.
