Exmouth Light Orchestra (ELO) has performed what it considers to be its ‘best concert yet’.
Saturday’s summer concert - at the Church of St John the Evangelist in Withycombe Village Road - was performed by more than 80 musicians, who played to a packed house. It featured a wide repertoire, including Strauss’s Radetsky March, music from Gladiator, A Whiter Shade of Pale, Paul Desmond’s Take Five, The King and I, the Best of Queen, Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Cygnets from Swan Lake and a tribute to John Williams.
“I really think it was our best concert yet,” said Daphne Lockyer, ELO’s musical director. “We heard very many positive comments about the evening, both at the church and from emails, so we can all be proud of ourselves. It’s nice to enjoy doing something which also brings pleasure to many others.”
The orchestra’s next concert has been arranged for Saturday, December 2.
