A huge thank you to all involved and everyone who came to listen to the Jersey Academy ‘Strings and Friends’ Winter Concert on the 11th.
We enjoyed hearing the Senior String Orchestra in the first half, opening with Sibelius’s Andante Festivo and culminating with Elgar’s lyrical and
expressive Serenade in E minor for Strings, featuring a beautiful violin solo by Anna Edelenbos.
In the second half the strings were joined by other orchestral instruments, performing favourites including Prokoviev’s Troika, Delius’s Winter Night and a rendition of Leroy Anderson’s famous Sleigh Ride.
We were very impressed with the high level of musicianship from all
performers, and look forward to seeing future performances from Jersey Academy Senior Strings!
