CBSO Youth Orchestra
A number of our pupils took part in the prestigious CBSO Youth Orchestra over half term. After a week of intensive rehearsals, they performed works by Debussy, Bizet and de Falla, conducted by Mirga. Special congratulations to Charlotte in the Lower Sixth who was invited to lead the orchestra in the concert at Symphony Hall on 29th October.

Foundation Service Choir
Thank you to those girls who sang in the choir for this year’s Foundation Service at Birmingham University. They performed a stunning a cappella work entitled Stars by the Latvian composer Eriks Esenvalds, featuring water-tuned glasses.
