The senior orchestra gave rousing performance of the BBC Proms inspired Nimrod by Elgar, along with Brahms's Symphony No IV.
The Rhythm Co-operation continued the summer theme with musicians performing Latin-inspired pieces.
The senior strings played a tango.
A school spokesman said: "Our musicians are enjoying a busy time of year, including the Music Academy Recital (which took place on Thursday, July 11 in Saffron Hall) and a trip to Lake Garda at the end of term.
