Pupils in Prep 5, Prep 6, 1st and 2nd Form were treated to a recital by two ex-WGS pupils.
Alex and Georgina Norman who are twins, joined Wisbech Grammar School in the 1st Form in September 2007, having already been studying with Mr Steward, our brass teacher, for two years. Currently, Alex is studying for a BMus at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and Georgie is following a similar course at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
Whilst they were pupils at WGS they played in various ensembles, including the Swing Band and Orchestra. They were both delighted to come back to the School and perform for our pupils, who heard a lovely variety of music which showed off each performer. Highlights included Alex playing the first movement of Haydn’s famous Trumpet Concerto and Georgie playing “The Acrobat” which is full of glissandos or slides, which the trombone does to great comic effect.
