Huntingdonshire Music School At The George Hotel

Huntingdonshire music school was very privileged to have been able to hold it’s Summer Concert at The George Hotel this year.

It was touch and go as to whether the weather would be kind to us, but the sun came out in time.

The concert began with out little flute group, newly formed especially for this concert.

Following this was the Advanced Concert Band, see picture below and our Saxophone ensemble.

The second half began with the senior string group

Our fantastic folk group was up next - without music as always.

Our grand finale was provided by our fantastic and very busy big band.

Huntingdonshire Music School would like to thank all staff, students and families for supporting this concert,The George Hotel, Huntingdon for allowing us to use this fantastic venue and the weather for being kind to us in the end!

Tea with a swing

Huntingdonshire Music School Big Band has had a very busy year this year.

The Band have a fantastic repertoire of 40’s music and have been putting this to good use at many events this year. Dressed for the occasion they have entertained crowds at several 40’s themed events this year including the Warboys World War II 70th Anniversary Fete on Saturday 27th May. One member of the band described this event as follows. Gorgeous Weather and marvelous music! Appreciative Audience and tea in Jasmine Beryl Ware cups and saucers! When it finally comes the band we hope that the band enjoy a well deserved summer break. You can catch them next at an open rehearsal in Huntingdon Library on 19th September 2015.

End of Term Concert - Saturday 7th July 2012 - With Added ‘Fnugg’

On Saturday 7th July there will be a free concert at the Huntingdonshire Regional College starting at 19:30 given by some of the ensembles at the music school.

We also have a new feature - a spot for staff to strut their stuff. Taking the first spotlight is Robin Norman who teaches brass and directs the Senior Concert Band and the Senior Orchestra. Not being a wallflower - they don’t tend to suit tubas - Robin is playing ‘Fnug’ which demonstrates some of the many sounds a tuba is capable of including harmonics and beat-boxing. There is more information on this piece on YouTube.
