Following the postponement of the Community Messiah event last March, it was with great pleasure that staff and students from BSG joined forces with other schools and choirs from Bruton to perform extracts of Handel's Messiah on the afternoon of Sunday 16th September. Under the direction of Edward Goater, rehearsals took place between 1 and 4pm, with the concert beginning at 5pm. St. Mary's Church was full for the performance, with audience members remarking on the fullness of sound achieved by the ensemble. A special mention must go to Old Girl Genevieve B, as well as to current Senior 5 students Genevieve S and Miranda S, for bravely and expertly performing three solo lines from the famous oratorio. Many thanks to all the staff who helped support this memorable community event, and to all parents, family, staff and governors who also came to support the concert, making it such an enjoyable performing experience.
Mr Dury, Director of Music
