The Commonwealth Choir were rehearsing and recording their performances pieces at the Guards Chapel in preparation for their performance on Commonwealth day on March 14 outside the horse guards parade in Whitehall.
As part of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Celebrations, pupils from St. Edward's, St. Joachim's and St. Winefride's travelled to Salisbury Cathedral on Saturday 23rd April 2022 to perform as part of the Commonwealth Children's Choir, accompanied by the Central Band of the Royal British Legion.
After their performance, members the orchestra and the general public praised the singing of our choir, in addition to the exceptional behaviour and enthusiasm which our children displayed. Before our return to London, the children enjoyed an overnight stay at the youth hostel and on Sunday morning they were treated to a full English breakfast and a tour of the local rare breeds farm, in which they had the opportunity to feed alpacas and ponies, as well as see peacocks, Guinea-pigs, chickens, sheep, goat, cows and pigs.
Congratulations to all our pupil and members of staff who accompanied them for being such wonderful ambassadors for our schools.
