Senior Ensembles Celebrate the end of Year in style!
The Senior Music Centre Concert at Wiltshire Music Centre included those ensembles that represent some of the very best of our young musicians in Bath and North East Somerset. The ensembles featured Schools Philharmonic Orchestra, Symphonic Wind Band, Cantilena, Brass Tacks as well as interval music from Incantation and Flutes Galore.
The music performed included the finale from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, Handel’s Zadock the Priest, Psalms Project ‘Do Not Be Far’ by local composer Steven Faux plus a wide selection of contemporary music from composers such as Eric Whitacre, Adam Gorb and Nigel Hess!
Here are some comments taken from emails received since:
- ‘…that I thought last night’s concert was spectacular!’
- ‘It was an avalanche of musical talent that just kept rolling to the very last note and from the youngest instrumentalist to the oldest vocalist the performers gave their very best!’
- ‘The combined choir and orchestra pieces at the end were amazing and were very uplifting. I was so impressed with the standard of all four groups performing and feel very privileged to live somewhere that offers my children such great opportunities with their music.’
- ‘For us, it has been lovely to see the confidence of our children develop since being part of their different groups and their obvious enjoyment at attending the rehearsals
