Pupils will show off their musical talents at an autumn concert.

Stamford Endowed Schools will hold the annual event in Stamford School main hall from 7.30pm tomorrow (Thursday).

The concert is a platform for the school’s senior instrumental and vocal ensembles such as Hot Baroque, First Orchestra, Concert Band, Choral Society, Chapel Choir, Cantare, Advanced Flute Group and String Quintet to showcase their work.

The Chapel Choir will perform Jubilate in C as part of the school’s contribution to the national celebration of the centenary of Benjamin Britten. Continuing the English music strand, First Orchestra will perform the rousing Dambusters Overture and in contrast in scale and mood, Hot Baroque will perform the second movement of Elgar’s String Serenade.

Jazz and popular music enthusiasts will also be entertained with Choral Society performing Money, Money, Money by Andersson and Ulvaeus and It Don’t Mean a Thing by Ellington as well as pieces performed by concert band and big band.

The event is free and tickets are not required.
