Harker’s upper school orchestra has just returned from London, where they performed during the New Year’s celebration and participated in the city’s New Year’s Day Parade. During their performance at Cadogan Hall on Dec. 31, the orchestra, directed by upper school music teacher Chris Florio, performed “Overture to Candide” by Leonard Bernstein, “Norfolk Rhapsody No. 1” by Ralph Vaughan Williams and the famous “Overture to William Tell” by Gioachino Rossini. During their stay, the students also had the opportunity to see many of England’s most famous locations and landmarks, including the Tower of London, Windsor Castle, Westminster Abbey, Stratford-upon-Avon and the City University of Oxford.
