Fraud Blocker

York Guildhall Orchestra


Boarders had a special treat on the weekend. Mr Griffiths took the girls to the Barbican to hear the York Guildhall Orchestra play Beethoven’s Overture to King Stephen, Piano Concerto No 1 and Tschakovsky’s Symphony No 5 in E minor.

The YGO regularly rehearses at The Mount and features our own Clerk to Committee, Margaret Bryan, on the double bass.

The girls loved the experience.

I really enjoyed it! It was very emotional and dramatic!” – Johanna (Year 10)

It was fun! It was interesting to hear classical music first-hand and not over the radio or Spotify. It was a nice thing to experience, and it was also my first time!”- Elisha (Year 10)

It was inspirational! I was really motivated to play my (piano) pieces once we got back from the concert. The harmonies made my heart love!“- Dennisa (Year 10)
