Prep Schools’ Orchestra Day at Uppingham

Posted on Friday, 26th February 2016 in Music & Drama


On Thursday 25th February Mrs Wolton took the orchestra to Uppingham for an Orchestra Day.  There were about 300 children there.

The theme was Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat and we played ‘Jacob and Sons’, ‘Close Every Door’, ‘Benjamin Calypso’ and last but not least, ‘Any Dream Will Do’.

At the beginning of the concert there was a Jazz orchestra and then the strings played a solo and they sounded really good.  The wind section played ‘Uptown Funk’ and ‘Happy’.

It was an amazing day and everyone really enjoyed it.  I am looking forward to going again next year!
