Third Meeting of Joint Birkdale/SHS Symphony Orchestra

On Sunday afternoon 27 September the third meeting of the joint Birkdale & Sheffield Girls High School Symphony Orchestra took place.


Over twenty-five players from both schools came together to rehearse and then perform two movements of Mozart's 20th Symphony.

Dr Spencer Pitfield Head of Instrumental Studies said: "Once again it was wonderful to welcome so many talented young musicians from both schools into our combined school orchestra. Mozart is always a great challenge musically, but the young performers were simply outstanding and at the end of the workshop we performed two movements from the Symphony to an impromptu audience. I look forward very much to our next joint orchestral opportunity!"
