National Children’s Orchestra of Great Britain One of Wrington’s talented young musicians, Lucy Fews, has been playing second violin in the orchestra for 4 years, and is in her final year as the upper age limit is up to 14. This year’s summer public concert was in Bristol’s Colston Hall. The Conductor was Roger Clarkson, Lavinia Redman from Clapton-in-Gordano was guest soloist, and the programme consisted of Sibelius Karelia Suite overture, Frost Oboe Concerto, and Rachmaninov Symphony no. 3 The NCO was founded in 1978 by Vivienne Price, MBE, and the NCO office is now in Somerset. It is, of course, not permitted to record the music for reasons of performing rights, but the 3 video clips - tuning up, Conductor’s entrance, and final applause - at least give some sense of the atmosphere of the occasion.
