1944; School Orchestra


The orchestra has met regularly for rehearsals since its revival in September, 1944. While evacuated many boys had to forego their music as practice was not possible in the homes of their foster-parents; in consequence there are fewer boys from the upper school in the orchestra than pre-war, but this is being counteracted by the younger members, who have shown much enthusiasm and made notable progress.
The orchestra was augmented when works by Elgar, Percy Fletcher, Handel, Mozart, and Roger Quilter were played as incidental music to the play, Gallows Glorious, presented by the Dramatic Society last term.
