Dr Robert Childs told 4BR: "Having attended the end of course concert last year, I was blown away by the standard of performance from these young players."
He added: "It’s been a fantastic course so far and I’m hugely excited about what Saturday’s concert promises. Don’t let the band’s age fool you. These are first-class musicians."
