Somerset County Youth Orchestra and County Band Christmas Concerts
Somerset County Youth Orchestra and Somerset County Youth Concert Band gave successful performances to very appreciative capacity audiences.
The highlight of the Orchestra's performance was the Concerto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo, which was skillfully played by Richard Durrant. The Orchestra also performed the Slavonic Dances Opus 46 by Dvorak and Die Meistersinger Overture by Wagner.
The band enjoyed playing a varied selection of music which kept the audience entertained throughout the evening.Two particularly memorable pieces were Barn Dance and Cowboy Hymn, an original composition by Phillip Sparke and Dance of the Comedians, an orchestral piece arranged for Wind Band. These provided a challenge for the Band, who rose spectacularly to the occasion!
