Variety of music styles at Redbridge Music School’s spring concert

Redbridge Music School organised a spring charity concert in aid of the Salvation Army and other causes.

Audiences were invited to listen to the Redbridge Music School’s brass band and three choirs at the Salvation Army centre, Clements Road, Ilford, earlier this month.Listeners were treated to a variety of music styles from original compositions from Redbridge Music Service member John Garner and popular hits such as Cry Me a River to extracts from Handel’s Messiah under the direction of Denise Deering.

Music was also performed from the well-known film Brassed Off, under the direction of Simon Roberts.

For many singing in the community choir it was their first time performing such demanding classical and contemporary songs and one member said: “I am buzzing from such an invigorating experience.“The acoustics of the Salvation Army Hall were wonderful.”
