Beverley Schools Chorus 2010

For information on the Beverley Festival Schools Chorus 2011 click here

Pupils from several secondary schools performed together at this year's Beverley and East Riding Early Music Festival.  Led by musicians Sam Dunkley and Andrew Passmore, the pupils from South Hunsley School and Woldgate College in the East Riding and Egglescliffe Secondary School in Stockton-on-Tees joined together on Saturday 29 May at Toll Gavel Methodist Church to perform choral repertory by Mozart and Haydn.

The choirs rehearsed individually in their schools during term, with two visits from the chorus directors.  The concert day was the first time that the choir came together. The standard of the performance was excellent and was thoroughly enjoyed by all of the audience which included parents, teachers as well as the loyal early music festival audience.

The NCEM would like to thank students from the University of York who played and sang with the chorus at the performance. The Chorus first performed in the 2009 Beverley and East Riding Early Music Festival in a programme which included Gloria by Vivaldi and Come ye Sons of Art by Purcell.
