We are very excited to announce that the Senior Chapel Choir has reached the National Finals of Barnardo’s Choral Competition. After submitting a recording of two contrasting pieces in late November, the choir was shortlisted along with 17 other Junior or Prep school choirs and 6 Senior school choirs to perform in the finals on Friday 17 March at the Royal Festival Hall. The choir will also perform in the evening concert, which starts at 6.30pm. The BG Community is warmly invited to join us for this special event, and tickets will be available on the Southbank Centre’s website from Monday 23 January.
The lead adjudicator’s feedback on our submission was glowing. Highlights from his critique include:
“Very impressive tone – full and forward.”
“First rate ensemble and blend – very well done.”
“Such a pleasure to hear such good singing.”
Congratulations to our choristers on this outstanding achievement.
