MUSICAL students struck a chord with audiences at a Suffolk school’s summer concert.
Framlingham College held the annual display of instrumental talent at the nearby Church of St Michael.
Haydn’s Symphony No.47 opened this year’s concert, performed for family and friends, parents and guests.
It was the first classical symphony the orchestra had played in a decade, marking assistant director of music John Hutchings’ final concert.
Under Helen Orsler’s direction, the string ensemble gave life to the last movement of Holst’s St Paul’s Suite, while Charmaine Cooper’s wind ensemble delighted with Gershwin.

On a more reflective note, the string quartet adopted neo-classical form with Henrike Haltern for Bach’s Violin Concerto in E major, and were followed by John Southworth playing Haydn’s Piano Sonata in C sharp minor with deep musicality, and Charlotte Gower lifting hearts with Novello.
The Choir concluded with a repertoire from their recent tour to Prague, finishing with upbeat numbers from Britten’s Ceremony of Carols.
