It's been a busy term of music at the Senior School, showcasing the diverse musical talent we are nurturing here at the Stephen Perse Foundation.
Evensong at Ely Cathedral
On Wednesday 1 November, The Singers visited Ely Cathedral to sing the service of Evensong for All Saints' Day. Inspired by the magnificent surroundings, the choir sang fantastically, and the Cathedral clergy were most appreciative that we were able to cover this important service during their own choir's half-term break.
The Autumn Concert took place on Tuesday 14 November. A packed hall enjoyed performances by the Symphony Orchestra, Concert Orchestra, Big Band, Year 7 Choir, Middle School Chamber Choir, Middle School Choir, Jazz Singers and Senior School, alongside a number of outstanding solo and small ensemble performances. It was fantastic to see so many students - well over a hundred - performing in the various ensembles.
Carol Service at Great St Mary's
The beautiful Great St Mary's Church in central Cambridge offered an atmospheric setting and great acoustics for our Senior School carol singers. As always, our Carol Service was very well attended, and it was great to hear so many students, parents and staff joining together in festive song.
Seven bands came together for one rocking lunchtime concert on 11 December to celebrate the first term of 'Rock School' activities. Our talented group of Senior School bands covered recent hits from artists such as Clean Bandit and Ariana Grande, and had their audience dancing and singing along with them all the way. Everyone who came along was really supportive and it was a great atmosphere for their first concert - we're already looking forward to the next one!
