Orchestral Weekend 2017

This year’s Orchestral Weekend at Ilam Hall was as enjoyable and intense as ever. During the course of the weekend, everyone had the opportunity to take part in numerous ensembles and trek through the Derbyshire mud, as well as some time to relax.

The musical content was as varied as in previous years, ranging from The Lion King performed by Brass Group, Pirates of the Caribbean by Concert Band, to Purcell’s Chacony by the Senior Strings. Other movie favourites were tackled by Junior Orchestra (The Great Escape) and Senior Orchestra (Gladiator).

As always, the trip displayed the musical talents of both staff and pupils, with Mr Millinchip’s final performance on the cello, and Mrs Livesey’s debut performance on the tenor saxophone!

I would like to thank Mr Madden, Mr Millinchip, Mr Gandee, Mrs Bushell-Wye, Mrs Hackett, Mrs Thayer, Mrs Livesey and all pupils for creating such a memorable Ilam Hall.
