Orchestral & Choral Music Collaboration Day

Some 175 pupils join together to perform Handel's Zadok the Priest

On Thursday 22 October, our Music Department welcomed pupils from across Cardiff to join our pupils in an orchestral and choral music collaboration day.  The afternoon’s performances featured the Concert Orchestra, Cathedral Choir, Training Orchestra and Junior Girls’ Choir.  The Concert Orchestra performed Walton’s Crown Imperial and Elgar’s Chanson de Matin and members of the orchestra gave lively demonstrations of instruments to introduce the pupils to the orchestra.  The musical collaboration culminated in a joint performance of Handel’s magnificent coronation anthem, Zadok the Priest, with some 175 pupils in the choir and orchestra, after which Mr Dominic Neville said “Congratulations to all the pupils from across South Wales who came to St John’s College to perform this exciting music.  Thank you also to your parents and teachers: it was a pleasure to welcome your families and school communities, and we look forward to seeing you again!”
