We were asked to contribute some music for a charity concert taking place in Pickering, and organised by the Pickering and District branch of the Rotary Club. Mrs Leeson and Mr Richardson attended with Ferdinand Lutz (L6), Emily Leeson (L6), and Katie Hodgson (Y10).
There were also musical contributions from Malton, Norton, Lady Lumley’s and Rydale Schools. It was a very pleasant evening and we met with the other performers backstage. Each school had a ‘slot’ and we were the closing school of the first half of the concert.
Ferdinand and Katie performed Pachelbel’s Canon in D with Mrs Leeson, and Emily finished the first half of the concert with her performance of The Alto’s Lament by Zina Goldrich. Mr Richardson provided excellent accompaniment for both pieces, and both were very well received by the audience.
The concert raised around £500 for various local charities.
