Caterham’s Choirs Perform in Prague
The Eric Thiman Singers (ETS) and the Chamber Choir travelled to Prague in the Czech Republic at the end of the half term break and delighted audiences with magnificent performances.
The programme, centred around ‘Peace’, included a variety of motets and works by British composers including Purcell, Gibbons, Tallis and Old Caterhamian Eric Thiman. The Chamber Choir performed the challenging and breath-taking Miserere by Allegri – a work very rarely attempted by school choirs.
Audiences were visibly moved by the performances and gave rapturous applause at both concerts which were ‘standing room only’. Aside from rehearsing and performing, the choirs visited Prague’s most iconic cultural attractions in the beautiful city. Leisure activities included a karaoke party and river cruise. Congratulations to all who took part in this wonderful long weekend.
