Bammental School Symphony Orchestra

Nearly sixty children from Bammental in Germany travelled by coach to Askrigg to perform during the Swaledale Festival.

The conductor, Ingo Schl├╝chtermann, has performed at the Festival before, but this was his first time bringing an orchestra with him.

The school is just a normal German school with no particular emphasis on music, but clearly with good teaching they are capable of great things: the performance was excellent, with a wide range of music being played by children as young as ten years old.
