Senior School Choirs
The Choirs form an integral part of School life. Below is just a sample of what they do and where they have performed in recent years.
The Chapel Choir is around 55 singers including some staff. The Choir sings at every School Service, including Harvest, Remembrance, Advent and Christmas Carol Services, Sung Eucharist, Choral Evensong and Commemoration. Cathedral visits are regular – most recently to Chester, St Paul’s, York Minster, Gloucester and Peterborough. The Chapel Choir undertook a tour of New York in the Summer of 2010, singing at three venues of National importance.
By invitation, Chamber Choir consists of invited members and repertoire is usually, though not entirely, secular and lighter than that sung by the Chapel Choir. 2013 saw them perform at St George’s Chapel, Windsor; 2014 in St David’s, Pembrokeshire. The girls gave a performance of Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols last December, selections of which appear on the Advent to Christmas CD which you can purchase from the Music School.
Open to all adults and pupils associated with Bromsgrove School, sometimes with a Prep School involvement. Recent concerts include Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s Creation, Mozart’s Requiem and Haydn’s Te Deum. In March this year Choral Society performed Fauré’s Requiem, Cantique de Jean Racine and Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs.
