We had a brief rehearsal at school before loading all the instruments, music stands, specially designed cello and double bass stools onto the coach and making our way to the venue. The Senior Orchestra played performed ‘Ungaresca’ and the Senior Choir joined them onstage to perform a Rock Medley. The adjudicator was impressed by the ‘good balanced sound’ of the orchestra and ‘very good use of dynamics’ by both singers and instrumentalists.
As a result of their performance the Senior Orchestra and Choir were announced as the winners of their class and were awarded a trophy. Copies have been made of the certificate and adjudication sheet so every pupil who took part can have their own to take home.
