Senior Orchestra

We have been leading the School Orchestra for two years and have loved being a part of such a talented group of musicians. The Orchestra provides everyone with a chance to play music together and develop playing and performance skills that can only be experienced in the challenges of group-playing. We practised a variety of pieces throughout the year but for the annual Spring Concert and Open Nights we concentrated on ‘Burt Bacharach Medley’, arranged by Richard Ling. We rehearsed every Thursday afternoon after school from September until the concert, working hard to perfect our technique. A big thanks must go to Mr Snell, our conductor, who has shown nothing but dedication and commitment over the years, and the orchestra would not be where it is without him. Thanks also to Miss Foster for her support and organisation.
