The annual Spring Concert which took place in Pittville Pump Room was a wonderful evening which delighted all those who attended. The Orchestra’s performance of Fingal’s Cave and the Byrd Vigilate sung by Close Harmony were particular highlights, and Louis Morford was on top form with his performance of Mozart’s 4th violin concerto, for which he had composed the cadenza the previous week.
Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana provided a fabulous and dramatic second half. The percussion section, made up of Matthew Moorhouse, Oscar Richardson and
Evelyn Dick, played with huge confidence, and it was wonderful to see the Music department’s Sylvia Klemz perform the soprano solos. Dean Close has waited a long time to hear Sylvia, who studied at the Royal Academy of Music, and she gave a stunning performance, showing off her incredible voice. It was a great evening
