A' Level Musicians Recital Evening (by Elise Symes-Turnbull Yr12)

On Thursday 30th April, some of the best Year11 and Yr12 musicians from Lady Lumley's and Ryedale School came together to showcase their talents in a Recital Evening at Helmsley Arts Centre.  The main focus of the concert was to give the A Level Musicians: Rhona Hunter, Sam Wilbor, Tom Middleton, Ollie Fearn, Hannah Richardson and Elise Symes-Turnbull, an opportunity to record their performance pieces in front of a live audience as part of their AS Music course.  Thankyou to both Mr Moxon of Ryedale School and Mr Wass of Lady Lumley's, who accompanied some of the musicians during their performances, and who both graded the performances on the night.  It was good that both schools could join together for the evening to provide a large range of pieces of music of different styles and genres.  I found the evening very enjoyable because we could listen to the other musicians performing as well as performing our own pieces to a receptive live  audience.
