Barnstorming success for EYO at Post-Tour Concert

Ealing Youth Orchestra’s annual Post-Tour Concert was greeted with a standing ovation from a packed St Barnabas on Saturday night after an emotionally-charged evening which culminated in a searingly powerful performance of Tchaikovsky’s mighty 4th Symphony. The concert marked both the orchestra’s return from a hugely successful tour of Budapest, one of the best of recent years, and the final appearance of many EYO members before leaving for higher education, some after exceptionally long service.

EYO’s conductor and Music Director Leon Gee described the concert as “a monumental achievement… a befitting end to a great tour and indeed a great year for EYO”.
