‘A fresh, bright evening’ – The College’s annual Summer Concert entertains audience at St Michael’s Church


A striking chord of G major began Haydn’s Symphony No.47, and thus began this year’s Summer Concert held on a fresh bright evening in the cool atmosphere of St Michael’s in Framlingham, where we played host to family and friends, parents and guests.

The Orchestra excelled itself in tackling a classical symphony, the first they have played in a decade, marking John Hutchings’s final concert with them. Helen Orsler’s String Ensemble gave life to the last movement of Holst’s St Paul’s Suite, and Charmaine Cooper’s Wind Ensemble delighted with Gershwin.

There were a few reflective moments too: the String Quartet in neo-classical form, Henrike Haltern in Bach’s Violin Concerto in E major, John Southworth playing Haydn’s Piano Sonata in C sharp minor with deep musicality, and Charlotte Gower lifting our hearts with Novello. The Choir concluded with items from their recent tour to Prague, finishing with upbeat numbers from Britten’s Ceremony of Carols.
