On tour with the Hampshire County Youth Orchestra

Five St Swithun’s girls joined the Hampshire County Youth Orchestra for a concert tour of Hungary during the summer holidays. 2016 leavers Blaise Bird, Edie Bailey and Lara Anderson accompanied current pupils Jaisila Patel L6 and Eleanor Holmes L4 along with the other orchestra members.

The orchestra played concerts in cathedrals and venues in Debrecen, Eger, Budapest and Vac with the standard of playing extremely high throughout.

Eleanor has just passed her audition for HCYO year 2016/17 and has also been invited to play in the Hampshire county chamber orchestra this coming year.
