Alumni event: Come and sing Carmina Burana
- Sunday 20 January 2019 - 10am-2pm
- The Stoller Hall
- Free event for Chetham's staff, students and parents, past and present
A chance for former students from across the last fifty years to come together in song, rehearsing choruses from Carmina Burana for an informal sharing with family and friends.
Open to Chetham’s students, staff and parents, past and present, we’re inviting everyone in our extended community to begin our 50th anniversary year in harmony. On Saturday 19 January, you’re invited to join us from 12.30pm for the afternoon of our Open Day to look around the School at your own pace, and then we’ll arrange drinks and nibbles once the Open Day comes to a close.
On Sunday morning it’s back to school, where Director of Music Stephen Threlfall will lead the group in rehearsal. At around 3.30pm, any non-singers, family and friends can be invited along for a very informal performance and closing drinks.
Partners and family members of any age are very welcome at any part of the weekend. Those involved in the rehearsals should be able to read music, although it’s fine if younger participants need a little assistance from you.
Pianists and percussionists, let us know if you fancy accompanying; singers, volunteers for the solo lines would be welcome.
More details to follow soon…
