Every Y7 attended a very enjoyable annual Halle concert at the Bridgewater Hall, linking to the SOW on orchestral instruments. The theme this year was ‘Music from the British Isles’ and they heard an excellent performance of Britten ‘Young Person’s Guide to the orchestra’.
This was an opportunity to take the entire year group to the Bridgewater Hall , which is one of the best concert halls in the UK, as many of the students have not been there ever before.
AGGS String Orchestra have again won through to the National Finals of Music For Youth with their exciting programme which included Britten and Bartok. This ensemble is led brilliantly by Mrs Janet Janes, also violin and viola teacher at AGGS and includes advanced and committed string players from Y8 to Y13.
The girls will play their national final programme in the Adrian Boult Hall in Birmingham on Fri 10 July, competing against the top string orchestras and ensembles in the country.
If you would like to hear the orchestra perform, they will be playing their 15 minute programme in the AGGS Summer Serenade during the evening Monday 6th July. Tickets available from Reception.
Good luck girls!
