Schola Cantorum and the Brass Ensemble gave a stunning Midwinter Concert at Blakeney Church
1 March 2022
On Friday 26th February, pupils in Schola Cantorum and the Brass Ensemble gave a stunning Midwinter Concert in the beautiful setting of Blakeney Church. Directed by Mark Jones, Schola sung Haydn’s Missa Sancti Nicolai Mass in the first half. Orchestral players were welcomed to accompany the singers and the pupil soloists sang exceptionally well. The Brass Ensemble, directed by Lynne Roberts, delighted the audience with their pieces. After the interval, a particular highlight was Schola and the Brass Ensemble joining forces to give a rendition of a school favourite, The Song of Mary. Another highlight was Julius R’s rendition of the Bach aria, Ich habe genug. Some shorter choral items and brass pieces completed the evening. A retiring collection was taken for the Holt Youth Foundation. Well done to all involved!
