Spring is here, daffodils are out and all we now need is good music. We hope to give you just this at TRMS concerts.
On Monday, 20th March, I went to Cadogan Hall in London where The Purcell School Symphony Orchestra was performing and I was invited as one of the guests.
What I saw and heard there took my breath away and filled me with pride and pure joy – pride because I on behalf of TRMS felt proud and immensely privileged to be associated with a music learning place of world class reputation like the Purcell School and pure joy at listening to sublime quality music from such young aspiring and talented students.
Purcell School Symphony Orchestra-Cadogan Hall, London on 20th March
Performance to a pacxked Cadogan Hall included Hector Berlioz’s Roman Carnival Overture, Antonin Dvorak’s Cello Concerto, a prize winning piece composed by an aspiring young Purcell School student and finally Dimitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 in D minor.
Atmosphere electric, audience spell-bound and what was amazing was that it was a student orchestra performing and not professional musicians who do this day in and out.
With the help from and partnership with the Purcell School, I along with my colleagues in the TRMS team supporting, aim to bring this calibre of music to Rickmansworth on a regular basis. It may take some time but if you have the patience to wait, we, at TRMS have the enthusiasm and determination to make it happen.
In the interim, we hope to bring students of Purcell School to perfom for TRMS at lunchtime concerts soon.
Best wishes, Ash
