A special treat for the strings!
The school had the pleasure of welcoming Hector Scott, Head of Strings at Malborough College, for a day of entertaining and inspiring string workshops.
Working closely with our Junior and Senior Strings, Orchestra and Quartet, Hector delivered a vibrant series of sessions with our students. Our string specialists, Jane Kane and Andrea Williams had done a marvelous job of preparing some compositions with our ensembles beforehand to enable Hector to work specifically on chamber playing, instrumental technique and rehearsal etiquette. They covered a variety of styles, including Latino, traditional folk and grand orchestral pieces, some of which will feature in our upcoming Orchestral Tour to the New Forest at the end of May. Thank you to everyone who supported and helped our young players to prepare for this wonderful day!
