2020 School Closure Recordings
School closures came at a particularly sad time for CRGS's musicians, as not one but two concerts had to be cancelled - the school's Spring Concert, and Colchester's Schools' Prom. Nevertheless, an impromptu rehearsal of Orchestra was held on the penultimate day, to which more than 60 students came, and we made the following recording of Strauss' Tritsch Tratsch Polka, a fast and furious piece that demands to be played at breakneck speed!
We also managed one final Choir rehearsal just three days before school closed, and recorded two of the movements of Faure's Requiem (the Sanctus and Agnus Dei) we have been rehearsing this term. A magnificent 108 students came along to make these recordings.
