Young musicians on tour to HollandPosted on: July 10th 2016
Students from Amery Hill School have recently returned from a successful tour to Holland, where they impressed locals and visitors with their musical performances and concerts.
Musicians from the school’s ensembles accompanied the Concert Band and Orchestra to Noordwijk, known for its beaches and bulb fields. Students and staff performed in a number of different locations, including Delft Market Square, Noordwijk seafront and Zandvoort.
In between concerts, the group had the chance to explore Amsterdam, where they enjoyed a cruise on the canal and visited Zaanse Schans where the iconic images of Holland – cheese, clogs and windmills – are wholeheartedly embraced. Students enjoyed discovering the wooden houses and windmills of the old-world village, as well as visiting what many of the students described as “the best pancake house in the world!”
