The sun shone on the Elstree musicians as they performed to a large audience on the back lawn after the fete on Saturday. The orchestra began and finished the concert with favourites such as ‘Eye Level’ and the ‘Radetsky march’ as well as a piece chosen in honour of their leader, ‘Russian Gopak’!
The programme included performances by the winners of each category in the House Music competition as well as the String Ensemble , Jazz Band and several groups such as Electric Shock and H3 FL. We also had a last chance to hear some of our leading Year 8 musicians, including a sparkling rendition of ‘Czardas’ by Dmitry and a moving duet ‘You’ve gotta friend’ by life-long friends Tom and Jack. Both performers and audience stood up well to the heat and it was a wonderful way to round off a busy musical year.
