Fresh from their highly successful collaboration with the Hull Philharmonic Orchestra on Saturday, 26th November, the East Riding Youth Orchestra is returning to the City Hall in Hull on Sunday, 11th December to give their annual Christmas concert together with the senior wind band and their special guests the choir from Swinemoor Primary School in Beverley.
The school has recently received a Platinum Sing Up award to recognise the outstanding quality of the singing throughout the school. The choir will be joining the orchestra to perform John Rutter’s delightful Star Carol as well as singing some of their own favourite carols for Christmas.
The youth orchestra programme will include a performance of Shostakovich’s Festival Overture and Grieg’s famous Peer Gynt Suite.
Bob Mitchell, head of the East Riding music service, said:
“The youth orchestra will be performing for the fourth time this term and are in very good form as witnessed by the comments from eminent musician Paul Harris who said of their performance of Malcolm Arnold’s Eighth Symphony last Saturday ‘many congratulations again on a superb performance of No 8. The orchestra played with such commitment and feel for the music.’
Our Christmas concert is always a highlight for the music service and this year’s will enhance that tradition.”
