The two schools� best musicians will perform at a joint concerto night at Hadley Hall on September 11.

CCGS Year 12 student Henry Louden will play trombone at the concerto and has been playing the instrument for seven years.

�It�s a versatile instrument; you can play classical and jazz,� Henry said.

�We�ve been performing with all of the other concerto musicians throughout the year and it will be good to play concerto with them (MLC).

�It�s really good being part of a full orchestra with a massive sound and they are really good instrumentalists.�

MLC Year 11 student Ciara Sudlow, who is a violin soloist, said she wanted to learn the violin after she watched a classmate play.

�I really love the piece I�m playing: the Dvorak Violin Concerto,� Ciara said.

�The most challenging aspect of it is probably sticking with the orchestra because it�s quite a challenging orchestral part as well.�
