Kingswood Choirs Perform At St. Pauls In Aid Of Dorothy House
Last Thursday, all of Kingswood’s choirs packed into a coach and headed over to Chippenham to put on a charity choral concert in St. Paul’s church.
Chamber Choir, Senior Girls’ Choir and Westwood Voices had all been working hard this term to learn music for Remembrance, as well as some lighter classics to entertain the audience.
The first half of the concert took the theme of music for Remembrance – James’ opening trumpet solo of Abide With Me set the tone of solemn reflection.
Senior Girl’s performance of For the Beauty of the Earth and Westwood’s Winter Song reflected on the seasons and peace on earth, and the Chamber Choir’s rendition of Rutter’s Lux Aeterna, dramatically opened by Georgie, reminded us all of the eternal life to come.
After some refreshments, the second half began with some more upbeat choral classics, including Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat, Blackbird and The Bare Necessitates.
All in all, the concert was a huge triumph with so many parents and visitors commenting at the end on the impressive quality of the singing, as well as the sheer number involved.
The concert was organised in support of Dorothy House Bath and over £400 was raised on the evening – a fantastic achievement.Published: November 19 2019
