An inspirational evening with the Bournemouth symphony orchestra
On the 15th March, we took eighteen students from Year 9, 10 and 11 to see the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra perform at Portsmouth Guildhall. The concert showcased the classic work of John Williams and Hans Zimmer and provided an opportunity for our students to experience music from films such as Harry Potter, Interstellar, Schindler's List and Star Wars.
The orchestra was conducted by Pete Harrison, who spoke between pieces about the cultural background and musical features of each composition. The BSO is a world-class orchestra and it was an enriching experience for the students, who all behaved impeccably and represented the College with pride.
