Congratulations to Bronagh, in the Lower Fifth, who has been successful in her audition to join the National Youth Orchestra. Bronagh attended the NYO course over the Christmas holidays and performed in concerts with the orchestra in Warwick and Nottingham.
This term’s music making began in earnest on Thursday 10th January with a lunchtime recital in the Ruddock Hall given by Ella playing the trumpet and Renee playing the violin. Ella performed Badinage by Eugène Bozza followed by Andante et Scherzo by Henri Büsser, showcasing a wide variety of trumpet techniques in both pieces. Renee then gave an accomplished performance of Camille Saint-Saëns’ Havanaise, showing versatility across the whole range of the violin, and coping without a hitch when her shoulder rest fell off towards the end of the piece! Congratulations to both girls for their performances and thank you to Miss Sanders for accompanying them.
