Strings Day with the English Chamber Orchestra

On Tuesday 28 January we were we very fortunate to welcome to the School five members of the English Chamber Orchestra who lead the pupils through what had been entitled 'Strings Day'. This involved a day of playing by all the string players in the School in various ensembles ranging from chamber music to large ensembles.

The day ended with a very enjoyable concert in the New Hall where all the ensembles performed including a first as the Junior Strings joined together with Senior Strings for pieces by Bach and Purcell. The concert also involved a performance of Bach's Double Violin Concerto and the last movement of Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings.
