Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle


The A level and Y11 GCSE music students attended a music workshop led by Mark Padmore and some members of Britten Sinfonia. Mark is an international tenor performing all over the world including at the 2018 BBC Proms. The guitar, Morgan Szymanski has just returned from work in Costa Rico! The recital included music from Schubert, Purcell and more contemporary composers such as Rebecca Clarke. Students were given advice on composition and performance techniques and had the opportunity to ask questions about life as a professional musician. It was an excellent afternoon and one to be remembered for a long time.
