The Chamber Choir, approaching the end of a busy run of engagements, performed two very special concerts on Monday 12th December.
In the afternoon they visited Evercreech Village Hall to perform readings, carols and songs to elderly members of the Candlelight Community, an organisation supported by one of our parents, Mr Peter Lugg.
Continuing with the community theme, the girls then rehearsed and performed at the Cantabile Christmas concert at St Thomas’ Church, Wells. Cantabile is a ladies’ choir based in Wells, and run by BSG vocal tutor Miss Hansford. Each year their numerous concerts raise thousands of pounds for local charities, and so it was a pleasure to be allowed to guest at the event.
As well as joining the Cantabile choir for pieces such as Jamaican Noel (soloist Lauren Green) and A child is born in Bethlehem (encore), the girls also performed Away in a manger and Ave Maria as solo pieces.
Genevieve Baker was joined by Alice Tindal in a beautiful performance of Who can abide? A special mention also to Philippa Johnson for her solo in the first verse of Once in royal David’s city, as well to Alice Goode and Genevieve Baker for their instrumental solos in various Cantabile performances.
Mr Matt Dury, Director of Music at BSG said: "All our events and performances leading up to Christmas have helped to show the strength and musical quality of our students and it was a pleasure to be able to share that with so many people.
"Many congratulations to all the girls for making such a success of all their performances, and on all that they have given to the community at this seasonal time."
