Was anyone else at the City of Leeds Youth Orchestra concert tonight at Leeds Town Hall? I thought the performance of Vaughan Williams Sinfonia Antartica was worthy of a standing ovation - it was superb. I've never heard the symphony before but it was very well performed, and accompanied by pictures of the Antarctic on a giant screen behind the orchestra and a very dramatic narration to set the atmosphere of Scott's last expedition. If anyone on here was performing in the orchestra, very well done!!
Incidentally they're giving another performance on Tuesday lunchtime and a free ticket came with the programme - if anyone would like it, email/PM me and I can leave it at the Yorkshire College tomorrow after work for you to collect
