New Catz Orchestra Formed

New Catz Orchestra Formed

In Hilary Term, a newly-formed  Catz Orchestra comprising around 20 undergraduates and graduates was formed. Led by Chloe Rooke (2015, Music), they performed a programme of Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture, Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll and Beethoven’s Egmont Overture as part of a spring-themed concert held in the Bernard Sunley Lecture Theatre. 

 

Chloe commented, “The orchestra was formed due to a clear demand among Catz orchestral musicians. The selection of music was chosen to provide a suitable balance of difficulty to challenge players and give each section of the orchestra a moment to shine.’ 

 

The orchestra is holding a Trinity Term concert to include Bizet’s feisty Carmen Suite.
