Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra Trip

On Friday 16th May Clifton Musicians went to see Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra at Sheffield City Hall.  For many of our pupils this was their first orchestral experience and they were blown away by this awe-inpiring performance of Mussorgsky’s Khovanshchina, Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 6!  Several of our young musicians in Y7 and Y8 who attended the concert are currently participating in group lessons on strings, woodwind and brass instruments and will be forming the Clifton Orchestra in September.
