|Choirs singing for Benjamin Britten's centenary|
Under the direction of Tansy Castledine, Director of Music, the day began with some singing warm-ups in Chapel before groups dispersed to rehearse the music being performed in the concert. In the evening concert all the groups joined forces to create a vast choir. The audience even had an opportunity to join in with one of the songs from Jenny Gould’s Songs of Imaginings which took its influence from Friday Afternoons.
John Mann, Head of Strings, said of the event: “The children performed superbly, each group having an opportunity to take the spotlight and perform a song from Britten’s cycle on their own. At the end of the event, audience and performers alike left in high spirits, having gained much enjoyment from the experience”.
