Choirs

Music GenericThe School hosts two choirs for students. First, all students in Year 7 perform in the Year 7 Choir. The Choir teaches even the reluctant that they can sing and that music is a part of all of us. Second, the Chamber Choir draws its repertoire from the wealth of Latin liturgical music of Europe. Some English composers are featured, as well as music in French. The Choir has a thriving social atmosphere and a rigorous work ethic, and is a wonderful ambassador for the school. Recent engagements have included visits to Walsingham and Westminster Cathedral to sing at National events, as well as tours to Canada, Rome and Paris. Entrance to the Chamber Choir is by audition only.
