Essex Music Services held three very successful concerts over the Easter Holidays!

Essex Young People’s Orchestra spent two days at Felsted School preparing for a concert at Braintree Arts Theatre on 11th April 2019, with their resident conductor, Matt Andrews

The orchestra had an amazing experience performing two movements from Grieg’s Piano Concerto with the soloist Jill Morton.

Jill said “I really enjoyed working with them and it was fantastic to see so much enthusiasm throughout the orchestra.” The orchestra also performed Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony and Sibelius’ Finlandia.

Audience members thought the concert and standard of playing was fantastic.

Some of the new younger players although nervous at first thought the course and concert were a wonderful and inspiring experience. One new member said it was the “Best experience of music I ever had”
