Oakham School Chapel Choir gave a stunning performance of Brahms� masterpiece, A German Requiem, in the iconic chapel of King�s College, Cambridge.

During the concert, the choir was joined by international star and Old Oakhamian, bass-baritone Michael George, whose warm vocal resonance filled the chapel.

The concert also featured performances by leading Form 7 soloists from Oakham School, soprano Olivia Carrell, who sang Delius� serene and lyrical work �A late lark� with beautiful vocal tone, and �cellist Lucy-Rose Graham, who gave a compelling performance of Bruch�s impassioned Kol Nidrei.

Peter Davis, Oakham School�s Director of Music, said, �the Requiem itself was both thrilling and moving, the choir and orchestra capturing each emotion of this tour de force of choral music.� He added, �It was a wonderful opportunity for our pupils to perform, to a full audience, in this glorious setting. The audience were swept away by the extraordinarily high calibre of the choir and our soloists.�
