Truro School’s Assembly Hall played host to the annual Large Ensemble Easter Concert on Thursday night.
The evening began with a moving piece from the Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Gareth Churcher, ‘The Great Gate of Kyiv’ by Mussorgsky. The orchestra also performed Rogers and Hammerstein’s ‘The Sound of Music’.
Ritornello, conducted by Sarah Whomersley, performed a brilliant rendition of ‘Two in One Upon A Ground’ by Purcell, while B Natural entertained us with numbers from Lloyd Webber and Adkins and Astrom. The Samba Band truly rocked with their version of ‘Samba Rocks’ and the Junior Band (conducted by Peter Truin) wowed us with ‘Walking on the Moon’ by the Police.
The audience was treated to some stunning solos from Anna O, George S, Robbie H, Katie M and Ben A.
After the interval, the Wind Band played two classics; ‘The Pink Panther’ and ‘Selections from the Greatest Showman, while the Boys’ Barbershop showed great skill and timing during their performances.
This was followed by more solos from Issy T, Daniel R and Issy L and two rousing sections from the Chamber Orchestra and Jazz Orchestra, respectively.
It was a phenomenal showcase of true musical talent. We are immensely proud to be able to host these evenings and of our students and pupils who work so hard to perform to such a high standard.
A huge thanks to all of the conductors, staff, parents, pupils and behind the scenes staff who worked tirelessly to make this evening such a success and a fantastic way to end our Spring Term music calendar.
