Joint concert at St James’s

music at st james’s

Our joint concert with City of London Freemen's School took place last night in the beautiful St James’s Church in Piccadilly.

It began with a powerful performance from the joint brass ensemble with several pieces including the City schools' fanfare. It was followed by a multitude of trios, quartets and quintets from both schools which were all at an incredibly high standard. There was a joint cello ensemble whose performance of Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 was a great display of talent from both schools. The night ended with a large joint string ensemble, with two dancing movements of Danzas de Panama, then ending with a rousing performance of the Holberg Suite 1st movement (Grieg):an exciting finish to a fantastic night filled with a lot of phenomenal music.
