Christmas Holiday Orchestra

Our own musical director, Trevor Barlow, was course director for the 2009 Christmas Holiday Orchestra. Not only did he manage to introduce extra special variety to the course, but he also managed to take plenty of photo's! (see our facebook albums for more images)
With ACE sponsoring him Trevor was able to invite Alan Barnes, top Jazz Saxophonist soon to be leading our jazz course, to inspire the children with some awesome playing and a jazz workshop and he invited new conductors and instruments making it an extra special occasion.
The ACE team were able to experience the courses' results at the lunchtime jazz concert where the children performed with Alan Barnes to stupendous effect! It was clear that everyone, including Alan, benefited from the experience and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
