THE Saraton Theatre was home to a special meeting of musicians on Wednesday night when students from four Clarence Valley public schools combined with the Northern Beaches Mass Choir and the Northern Beaches Concert Band for a stirring concert.

The Northern Beaches Concert Band was conducted by James Hill, who brought the band to Grafton in 2011.

It was decided to bring the choral group this year and combine with the singing talents of Grafton, Lawrence, Nymboida and Gillwinga public schools which have been rehearsing songs, including some in Latin, for weeks.

"Our children were so excited to be a part of this fabulous event and it was a wonderful opportunity to highlight to the Grafton community the fantastic programs on offer as well as the talented students and staff working in the public school system," said Grafton Public School relieving principal Leigh Robertson.
