‘Oklahoma!’ Pit Orchestra brings music to life

As well as the amazing performances on stage last week in our production of ‘Oklahoma’, it was wonderful to see a number of student musicians performing in the orchestra pit and so ably supporting the stage performers. I think everyone will agree that the pit ensemble sounded very tight and well balanced, so we must congratulate the following students for their contribution to the success of the 2016 Tintern production:

Holly Fryer (Flute)

Erin Hynson (Guitar)

Clarisse Liew (Violin)

Tiana McAsey (Flute)

Charlotte Menagh (Clarinet)

Maya Watt (Trombone)

Alison Yang (Violin)

We were joined in the pit by three of Tintern’s ex-students and thank them for their wonderful contribution also:

Charlotte Black (Keyboard)

Chloe Eckley (Oboe)

Joshua Jones (Bass Guitar)
