Our Chamber Choir and String Orchestra, together with community choirs performed a massed concert of Vivaldi’s Gloria at St. John’s Church in Caterham. This marked the opening of the 2018 Caterham Festival – the tenth festival in this annual celebration of music and the arts. The music department were pleased to support this local event and feature our talented musicians and singers. Our Senior String Orchestra provided outstanding accompaniment to the baroque masterpiece – they played with vigour and style. Our Chamber Choir underpinned the massed choir; they were joined by members of Barisons Singers, Downland Chorale, East Surrey Choral Society and enthusiastic members of our school staff. Together the chorus made a fantastic and uplifting sound in the wonderful acoustics of St. John’s. A special mention must go to our soloists: Charlotte, Aldi, Charlotte, Olivia and Charlotte R. Their complex solo movements were sung with precision and authenticity. The audience were highly impressed by the high standard of Caterham School’s musicians and singers. Congratulations and thank you to all pupils and staff who took part.
