Further Music Success

Two more Moreton pupils are celebrating recent achievements in music:

Elizabeth (U5), participated in the Four Counties String Ensemble course which took place at Moreton and Emily (L6), participated in the National Youth Choir of Great Britain residential course over Easter.

Elizabeth says:

"In the Easter break I received an invitation to attend the North Wales Youth Orchestra residency to play first violin. This was an intensive 9 until 9 daily schedule for three days with a performance at Mold Parish Church on 9th April of a varied programme of music which included works by Saint-Saens, Mozart and Dvorak. I also had the opportunity to work with the Principal of the NYOW who I will work with again in the NYOW residency in the summer."

Emily writes:

"Over the Easter Holidays, I was lucky enough to spend a week singing with the National Youth Training Choir of Great Britain. It was an incredible week of intense singing: learning eight pieces to perform as part of the concert which was held at the end of the week in the Royal Albert Hall with the entire organisation of singers from ages 9 to 25! We sang a variety of different kinds of music, from the sublime 40 part motet 'Spem in alium' by Tallis to the ridiculous with Sivaji's bollywood hit 'Balleilakka' (complete with Bollywood dance moves) accompanied by musicians from SAMYO. The highlight of the concert had to be being conducted by NYC's patron, John Rutter! As well as doing lots of singing (of course!) I also made loads of new friends and can't wait for the next course to sing with them all again!"
