Music spans the ages

By in Local People

THE power of music melted the generation gap in Kingsteignton last week when pupils from St Michael’s C of E Primary School visited Penns Mount residential care home.

The children made the short trip across town in order to perform a number of songs for residents.

Their repertoire included Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water, songs from the big screen and a Gospel piece entitled This Little Light of Mine.

Choir leader Hannah Bray said: ‘It was a lovely afternoon for all concerned with our children really enjoying the chance to perform outside the school environment.

‘Residents’ feet were tapping throughout and the manager asked if we might be available to come again which was a lovely endorsement.

‘We look forward to returning when we can, as clearly the power of music has the ability to bridge the generation gap in a way that nothing else can.’
