A school has hosted its first concert in 20 months, after cancellations due to the pandemic.

On November 5, an Autumn Concert was hosted in Oakham School's chapel where pupils put on an evening of music.

Three major ensembles rose to the occasion, with performances starting by the Concert Band opening with spirited performances of Erickson’s Toccata and Vaughan Williams’ March: Seventeen come Sunday.

The band went on to play a medley of Eric Clapton songs which embraced a combination of rock grooves and lyrical melodies.

The Chamber Choir came to the platform to introduce the French theme of the remainder of the programme.

The second half of the concert was given by the Symphony Orchestra, which tackled major French orchestral works.

"Congratulations to all involved.”
