Carmarthenshire Music Service held its annual Junior Prom Concerts on the 22nd, 23rd, 29th and 30th of June, playing to capacity audiences at Y Ffwrnes Theatre, Llanelli. Over the four concerts more than 1500 pupils representing primary schools in Carmarthenshire took part.
The Junior Ensembles rehearse either weekly or on a day course basis throughout the academic year, and these performances were a chance to display the results of the hard work put in by both pupils and staff.
The first concert featured Llanelli Junior Woodwind, Llanelli Junior String Chamber Ensemble, Llanelli and Dinefwr Cerddorfa Arall and Llanelli Junior Choir.
