Concert Club Enlightened at The Anvil


Alton School Senior’s ‘Concert Club’ enjoyed another excursion last night to the Anvil Theatre in Basingstoke to hear the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment under the world famous conductor Marin Alsop in an all-Beethoven programme.  After the interval we listened to the brilliant internationally acclaimed Nicola Benedetti perform Beethoven’s violin concerto. We were intrigued by the timpani in the cadenza – a very unusual feature – and the use of natural horns instead of the more conventional French horns was a topic for some in-depth discussions!

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the concert and we look forward to our next outing!
