OVER 80 students from across Thurrock took part in an Ensembles Concert at the Culver Centre, South Ockendon last month. The event was organised by Thurrock Music Services and showcased the extensive ensemble work that takes place in the area on a weekly basis.
There were performances from a large range of ensembles such as Thurrock Youth Orchestra, string, guitar, percussion and saxophone groups plus the Arthur Bugler School Band.
The evening’s repertoire had something for everyone with film music and light classics as well as jazz and some traditional music from around the world.
Shannon Stowers, a Year 11 student from St Clere’s School gave an excellent soloist guitar performance of Senhorina by Guinga.
On the evening, the Culver Centre Hall was packed with a sell-out audience. Cllr Yash Gupta attended the evening and expressed his enjoyment and praised the children for their achievements.
