Chapel Choir performs at Sheldonian Theatre
Sunday 20 March
On Sunday 20 March, the Chapel Choir, accompanied by professional orchestra, gave a concert at the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford. The Choir performed music by Bach and Haydn, opening with Haydn’s famous Insanae et vanae curae. Form 7 music scholar Adam Hebditch gave a stunning rendition of Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto. The Choir closed the second half with one of Bach’s Easter cantatas, Der Himmel lacht! Die Erde jubiliert, with soloists drawn from the choir. During the second half, the Choir and orchestra gave a dramatic and polished performance of Haydn’s popular Nelson Mass. Form 7 soloists Alva Muris, Edwin Lambert and Alex Bower-Brown and Old Oakhamian Miranda Heldt must be commended for their stylish performances. We are delighted that a retiring collection of £695.86 was raised on behalf of OCCTOPUS, the Oxford Colon Cancer Trust.
