Chapel Choir concert at St Mary’s, Beech Hill
“Quintessentially English” is how we would describe the wonderful Chapel Choir evening concert at St Mary’s, Beech Hill just before half-term. The church looked stunning with its beautiful mosaics and scented flowers, the sun shone, there were drinks and canapés and – most importantly of all – the choir was in fine voice. The choristers concentrated hard and gave a superb and polished performance. The choir is arguably at its best in the summer term having worked together as a team all year. They have become familiar with the repertoire and the combination of anthems, reading, congregational hymns and organ solos made for the most perfect evening.
As a Prep School, one of our priorities is to equip the pupils with skills for senior school and beyond, including one of the most precious of all – the ability to enjoy making music with others. As one parent commented afterwards, “His days at Elstree really have cemented something magical” and I hope every chorister went away from the evening with a spring in their step knowing they are firmly on the path of their special musical journey.
Thank you from St Mary’s
