A stunning orchestral concert brought to a fitting end the celebration of our 50th anniversary year - at least as far as The Menuhin Hall is concerned. The last twelve months have seen a series of outstanding Alumni Celebrity Concerts and an equally impressive programme of Showcase Concerts - fulfilling our aim of having every concert presented by the School in the Hall this year being performed by either current or past students. And what a year it has been!
It has been a very busy musical end to the term. The past ten days alone have seen the Summer Festival Concerts - six concerts in four days featuring a solo performance from every one of our 75 students, the two orchestral 'picnic' concerts, a fund-raising concert in Hampstead and an orchestral concert in the Thaxted Festival.
The leaving students will be performing one last time tomorrow night (Wed 9 July) in the annual Wigmore Hall concert, other students will be giving a concert in All Saints Church, Oystermouth, as part of the Gower Festival on Friday 11 July, three of whom will also travel out to Switzerland to perform in the Menuhin Festival at Gstaad at the end of the following week.
A very busy end to a very busy term. Good luck to all our leavers - and a restful holiday to all.
