The Yehudi Menuhin School celebrated Fireworks night with its very own Guy Fawkes Night firework display in the school grounds before The Menuhin Hall opened its doors for an 175th anniversary concert to commemorate the anniversary of Tchaikovsky’s birth.
The audience was treated to a full programme of music in honour of the Russian composer. Malcolm Singer, Director of Music at the School, said it was an exciting evening, showcasing the School’s talented pupils: "Mounting an all-Tchaikovsky concert was, educationally, a great project for the pupils. Preparing the rarely-heard early String Quartet movement, as well as the beautiful choral pieces alongside the better-known pieces for violin, cello and piano, made it an attractive line-up which the pupils performed stunningly. The audience seemed to enjoy it too."
Showcase Concerts form part of performance education for the Yehudi Menuhin School pupils. There are still a few tickets left for our Christmas concerts, performed by the pupils, on Tuesday 8 December. Tickets are also available for the Showcase Concert on Thursday 4 February 2016.
