A Musical Extravaganza | Friday 27 November
Our Autumn series of Virtual Music in the Chapel continues with another lively concert, bringing together some of our senior ensembles as well as our Lower School ensembles. This vibrant concert includes a mix of exciting music for strings, wind, brass and choir. The Big Band bring the concert to a close with some energetic tunes, raising the roof off the Chapel both physically and virtually.
A Musical Celebration | Friday 13 November
It was a great joy to host the very first major Chapel concert of this academic year on Friday 13 November. Whilst we are unable to welcome audiences into the Chapel, we continue to be committed to sharing our pupils’ performances with a wider audience. We launched our new Autumn series of Virtual Music in the Chapel concerts with a concert of great variety and joy. We welcomed three of our senior ensembles as well as a traditional performance from our Form 1s to lift all of our spirits. It was a particular pleasure to showcase a special commission by Ešenvalds; known for his luxurious harmonies, this piece is a beautiful, lilting setting of Latin text.
Thank you to those who joined us live; the concert is available to watch in full below.
