Orchestral Weekend at Ilam Hall

Last term's Orchestral Weekend at Ilam Hall provided an opportunity for our instrumentalists to enjoy some intensive music-making together in a fabulous location.

The group, which this year numbered over 100, got to play in a variety of ensembles, as well as completing a new orienteering course around the National Trust estate.

Mrs Bushnell-Wye and Mr Gandee did a tremendous job once again in preparing all their groups for Sunday's concert back at school in The Grange Theatre. The music performed was as wide-ranging as ever, from Britten... to Bohemian Rhapsody.

The Orchestral Weekend demonstrates the enthusiasm, commitment and talent of our young musicians, and I would like to thank the pupils and staff who came to Ilam this year for all they did to make it so enjoyable and successful.
