Live music returns to the Woldingham stage

Live music returns to the Woldingham stage

Woldingham’s Scholars’ Concerts are always a pleasure, but on Monday 5 October even more so as it has been many months since our auditorium resounded to live music.

Our music scholars performed a varied repertoire that spanned four centuries, from Handel’s Recorder Sonata in G Minor (c.1712), played by Isabella, to Jemima’s vocal performance of Shallow from the soundtrack of 2018 film A Star Is Born.

As well as voice and recorder, scholars demonstrated their prowess on piano, violin, cello, flute and clarinet to the delight of both the small audience in the auditorium and much larger audience of family and friends who were able to join us from home for the performance via the livestream.
