Schools Come Together in Song

Published Monday 28th of March 2011 03:24:15 PM

Glenalmond College, Belhaven Hill Preparatory School and the City of Edinburgh Music School came together to stage an outstanding concert at St Mary's Cathedral in Edinburgh.

Following a series of solo pieces by Glenalmond music scholars, the second half of the programme was a performance of Britten's Cantata Saint Nicolas by all three schools, conducted by Tim Ridley and starring professional tenor, Oliver Brewer. Glenalmond's choral society was joined by the Chamber Choir of Belhaven Hill Prep School, and accompanied by the musicians of the state-funded City of Edinburgh Music School.

This was one of Glenalmond's most ambitious musical projects, and the partnership with the other two schools added an extra dimension. The pupils of all three schools performed to an incredibly high standard and came together to bring the story of Saint Nicolas to life before a full audience at the Cathedral.
