Exmouth Light Orchestra performing during their 2016 Christmas Concert photograph by Ian Forsey
This year, we have been working on some fabulous music; for example 'The King & I', in an arrangement by the original orchestrator, Robert Russell Bennett; Verdi's Grand March from 'Aida'; the musical 'Chicago' and a challenging arrangement of music by the greatest film composer of them all, John Williams!
The members were busy this term, preparing for the summer concert with new pieces, such as exciting film music 'The Gladiator' by Hans Zimmer, some swing from the Dave Brubeck Quartet and even some Queen! The concert on 15th July was a sell-out and much acclaimed by the audience.
Saturday 2nd December 7.30 pm at the Church of St John The Evangelist, Exmouth.
We start back next term on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th September - hopefully at the usual venues!
We're always on the lookout for new, 'rusty' or experienced players of orchestral instruments.
We meet weekly in term time on Friday and Saturday mornings: come to one or the other, or both!
