9 Lessons and Carols

In our biggest event yet, 170 pupils and staff performed for an audience of over 400 in our annual service of 9 Lessons and Carols. The audience was treated to a variety of soloists (including Henry Hawkins and Brendan Soane, singing Bizet's Pearl Fishers' Duet, and Gianna Brown, singing Ave Maria by Beyoncé), performances from all of our 6 choirs (junior girls, senior girls, boys' choir, sixth form choir, staff choir and scholars) and orchestral and chamber music items.

Students tackled a very difficult and diverse repertoire, from Tavener's The Lamb to Turn Back O Man from Godspell. Perhaps the highlight of the evening was when all students and staff combined to perform Karl Jenkins' Benedictus (see video, below the photo gallery). Special thanks must go to Fr Con Foley and all at Weybridge parish for allowing us once again to use their beautiful church.
