The trip to Oxford was very fun, although the journey to Oxford was long. When we arrived in Oxford, we walked a short distance to the Ashmolean Museum where we looked at various ancient painting and artefacts from a wide range of cultures. I really enjoyed the Japanese exhibit because it had old samurai armour and two katanas which was really interesting. However, my favourite exhibit was the one with old violins and guitar. After supper, we walked around Oxford and explored the famous landmarks before arriving to Oxford Town Hall for the concert. The first half of the concert was Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto which was amazing. The pianist was Evgeny Kissin. The second half of the concert was devoted to Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony. Hearing the orchestra play was certainly a great experience.
