Orchestral Fiesta

Published on 04/05/17

After a wonderful symphony concert in the Autumn term, the Senior Orchestra followed up with yet another highly successful and enjoyable concert last night in the Great Room.

The evening started with the String Ensemble, led by Miss Affonso, giving a moving rendition of J S Bach’s Brandenburg concerto no 3. This was followed by a rousing performance of Bizet’s Carmen Suite which transported us to warmer climes and had us tapping our feet! The concert ended with a very polished and stirring performance of Beethoven’s Symphony no 5.

The music for all these pieces were the full unabridged versions and we are very fortunate to have so many talented and dedicated musicians who were faced with such a challenging programme which they carried off so successfully. Under the baton of Mr Hitchcock and Mr Affonso, they gave us a performance they should all be really proud of.
