Shanghai Day 3

4th May 2013

Friday saw the Aurora team joined by a contingent of players from the Shanghai Conservatory of Music for an an inspiring day of collaborative music-making (thanks to Aurora Principal Clarinet Timothy Orpen for the above image of the combined clarinet section).  Rory Macdonald conducted a thrilling joint performance of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite for a packed house at the Shanghai Concert Hall, introduced by Sara Mohr-Pietsch.  Below are some images taken from the rehearsals – thanks to Ben Larpent and Duncan Harte for the photos.

And here’s the Aurora horn section with their Shanghai counterparts, courtesy of Aurora Principal Horn Nicolas Fleury:
