A Musical Morning at Melsonby
On Wednesday of last week, we had the great fortune of having Paul McCreesh come into school and work with our children. This was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the musical talents of our pupils and suffice it to say Mr McCreesh was suitably impressed.
Paul McCreesh was first established as the founder and artistic director of the Gabrieli Consort & Players, he now conducts such orchestras as the Leipzig Gewandhaus, Bergen Philharmonic, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Sydney Symphony, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and Verbier Festival Orchestra. He is a former Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor at the Gulbenkian Orchestra, Lisbon and served for six seasons as Artistic Director of the International Festival Wratislavia Cantans in Wrocław, Poland.
