Exmouth Light Orchestra performing during their 2016 Christmas Concert photograph by Ian Forsey
This term the members have been busy as the July concert programme is finally taking shape; extra material such as exciting film music by Hans Zimmer, some swing from the Dave Brubeck Quartet and even some Queen!
Last term's rehearsals were a great success, working on some lovely music: for example 'The King & I', in an arrangement by the original orchestrator, Robert Russell Bennett; Verdi's Grand March from 'Aida'; the musical 'Chicago' and a challenging arrangement of music by the greatest film composer of them all, John Williams! And much more besides...
