On a blistering Saturday in early June, the Woodroffe School Early Music Orchestra returned to perform at Montecute House in Yeovil, Somerset. The group had previous visited the stunning mansion house under direction of Mr Seabrook in 2004.

Montecute House, now owned by the National Trust, was built in the late 16th century for Sir Edward Phelips, Master of the Rolls for Queen Elizabeth I and the prosecutor during the trial of the Gunpowder Plotters.

The audience and event organisers were so enamoured by the group’s performance, they were asked to come back and play again. Unfortunately the dates coincide with a performance at Barrington Court, near Ilminster, were the Orchestra will perform in the great Tudor hall.

Mr Morgan, Orchestra Lead, said “We have had a wonderful time at Montecute House and the musicians played extremely well. We would certainly love to return to this magnificent location in the future.

I would like to send my sincere thanks to Mrs Jevons, Mrs Morgan and Mr Peter Dawson for their help on the day, to all of the parents who came along to lend support and of course all of the musicians themselves, whom I am very proud of for helping make the event such a wonderful occasion.”
