The Night Digger - Scenario Macabre for String Orchestra Scene VII Bernard Herrmann
We're into the second day of the Music For Youth Schools Prom, and Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau has been talking to some of the performers backstage at London's Royal Albert Hall. Here he meets the members of the South Wilts Grammar School String Chamber Orchestra.
The orchestra hails from South Wilts Grammar School for Girls, a state school in the cathedral city of Salisbury with a thriving music department.
The Chamber Orchestra is just one of several ensembles which include a full orchestra, wind band and choirs. The orchestra enjoys performing a varied repertoire of music from a range of periods and styles – it’s not all baroque! Tonight they will be performing without a conductor.
Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau caught up with the orchestra backstage at the Royal Albert Hall before their performance at the Schools Prom.
