If music be the food of love, residents of Hovenden House had a double feast thanks to pupils at University Academy Holbeach.

As part of the academy’s harvest celebrations, members of the chamber choir delivered produce to the residential care home and gave a short concert to residents.

Academy head of music Sam Graper said: “The choir performed a range of music from traditional African chants, to pop music, to classical songs.

“The choir sang beautifully and did really well, especially as they have only had three rehearsals.

“We always enjoy visiting Hovenden as they are so welcoming to us and the room we sing in has a lovely acoustic too.

“It is really important for pupils to perform in front of an audience and visiting Hovenden also shows the pupils the power music has to speak to everyone.”
