Last Thursday saw over 120 Longfleet pupils gather in the Poole High School theatre for an evening concert showcasing their instrumental skills.
The evening kicked off with a performance by the Longfleet Orchestra who were joined by the Poole High School Orchestra and a number of teaching staff to form a group of approximately 75 brass, woodwind, string, piano and percussion players. They started with a fun medley of pieces and ended with a stirring performance of Mussorgsky’s Night On The Bare Mountain. That was followed by some lovely performances from our pianists, violinists, cellists, flautists, clarinettists and brass ensemble. In the second half of the concert we were treated to some excellent drumming, perfectly rehearsed keyboard performances, two exciting pieces by our 34 guitarists and a fitting finale from Rock Band who performed “Believer.”
The standard of music was high and the children were professional, focussed and confident throughout. Poole High were fantastic hosts, supporting us with lighting, sound and logistics and it was a pleasure working with their music team. Thank you to all the performers, helpers, instrumental tutors and audience members who made this such a special evening.
