From Russia with Love

Sunday, 3 July, 2016 -- Helen Wilson

The theme for this year’s ECCO concert was predominantly Russian in flavour, ranging from classic Russian folk songs to thrilling orchestral masterworks by the greatest Russian symphonic composers.  It was also peppered with James Bond numbers plus a couple of other surprises! Of course, the greatest of British music was saved until the end of the concert for the traditional flag-waving finale!

We also said goodbye to two teaching staff at the end of the evening, who have been part of ECCO for many years.  Ben Pollard, who compares ECCO and is Head of German, and Jon Poole, a member of the orchestra and Junior School teacher, both left Eltham College at the end of the term.
