Jersey Chamber Orchestra - "Night at the Oscars" - 26th Jan 2019

An exciting and dramatic night of film music was performed by the Jersey Chamber Orchestra with many highlights. From the touching notes of the slow movement of the Mozart Clarinet Concerto played by JCO clarinettist Jordi Juan Perez to Po Una Cabeza from Scent of a Woman played beautifully by Anna Smith the audience were spellbound. The orchestra was particularly dramatic in the Star Wars Overture and the Jaws Theme and uplifting in such rousing melodies as Indiana Jones’ Raiders March.

A trio of music from Lord of the Rings was sung beautifully by St Michael’s School Chamber Choir.  The concert raised around £2,000 funds for the Oscar Maclean Foundation.  Conductor Eamonn Dougan led the orchestra strongly and under his baton there was some very high class playing.  The Jersey Chamber Choir sang the Lacrimosa from the Mozart Requiem beautifully also seen in Amadeus and Danni Le Feuvre made a triumphant return to Jersey singing Skyfall from James Bond.

The concert was supported by by Mulberry Estates & UBS Wealth Management.
