Thursday 25 January – Pro Corda National Champions Concert
Clayesmore's U12 quintet became one of five Pro Corda National Chamber Music Champions for 2017 at the finalists concert at Brighton College back in March. The other ensembles chosen were either in the U16 or U19 age categories.
Katie Derham, the adjudicator, commenting on their performance, said "Damn you put on a show! It was possibly the most simple performance that we've heard all day, but it was probably the best performance that we've seen all day".
As this year's champions, they have been granted their own concert at the home of Pro Corda where the children will perform solos and as the chamber group for which they received their accolade.
The concert will be preceded by a fish and chip supper, served from 6.30pm and tickets for both the supper and concert will be £7.50 each These can be purchased by either phoning Pro Corda on 01728 831354 or e-mailing email@example.com.
