The Sinfonia treated the students an hour-long performance including the Angry Birds backing track and a solo by bassoonist Chris Rawley.

They then joined a lucky few students in a joint performance which was composed by the students.

A professional video crew filmed the concert so it was displayed live on a screen behind the orchestra.

Composer John K Miles was being told what to do by the students presenting the concert, before joining in towards the end.

In between performances the students gave a brief background on the next piece and also shared mini-interviews from the musicians.

Student George Garford was given the chance to conduct the orchestra, something that was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Music teacher Ceri Griffin, before the show, said: “This will be a concert by students for the students.”
