School orchestra wow crowd
120 seven to 11-year-olds take part in annual spring concert featuring 40-piece orchestra
A PACKED house of proud parents and teachers erupted in applause as they gave 120 seven-to-11-year-olds a standing ovation following their spring concert.
The talented kids, from Malorees Junior School, in Christchurch Avenue, Brondesbury, stunned the audience on March 31 with classical recitals played by a 40-piece orchestra before hearing string, brass and wind ensembles.
After a short break six bands picked up the tempo with lively renditions of pop classics including Dolly Parton’s Jolene, the Beatles Lady Madonna and Aretha Franklin’s Natural Woman.
Pamela Thomas, head teacher at the school, said: “It was absolutely extraordinary. I don’t think any other school could do what our children can do. They are so talented.
