Our students were delighted to hear music of all genres. One of the questions from a Preparatory student was whether the Orchestra could play a piece from Indiana Jones – the answer was that with the score (sheet music) in front of them, the members of the Orchestra can play any genre of music. The concert started off with the Star Wars Medley, a brief introduction to all instruments showing off the string section with Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Gounod’s piece for Woodwind and Brass, a percussion demo on Timpani and Drum kit by our own Stephan Pechoux, Pirates of the Caribbean medley, Pharrell’s Happy, ending off with our students singing the National Anthem accompanied by the Orchestra.

Daniel Watson from Preparatory participated.
