Evensong Winchester Cathedral Feb 2016

On Wednesday 24th February, the Chamber Choir sang evensong at Winchester Cathedral. This was an exciting opportunity for them to sing in an amazing venue accompanied by one of the cathedral’s organists. Students learned about the traditional elements of an evensong service and were able to develop their skills singing Psalms and Responses, a new experience for many.  Their performance of Stanford’s For Lo I Raise Up was particularly rousing, and special commendation should go to Phil Normand, Rhianna Jones, Holly Smart and Angus Armstrong for their solo contributions. The senior members of the choir were then invited to attend a reception with the Leader of Hampshire County Council, Councillor Roy Perry, who attended the service.​
