On Friday 16th June, Rochester Cathedral Choir and King’s Senior Choir joined forces to sing Evensong for the Old Roffensian Society, who celebrated their Annual Dinner in the Cathedral nave that evening.
Both choirs seemed to raise their game a bit in each other’s company, and the resulting sound was both polished and fully committed.
The evening enabled us to launch the Marimba Appeal, which aims to raise £10,000 to provide the pupils of King’s with an industry-standard marimba to learn, practice and perform on, as part of our ambition to develop tuned percussion. Please see more details here. Sophie played Vivaldi’s Violin concerto in A Minor, Saint Saens’ Swan, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee plus an encore by Bach from memory, which left the Cathedral in pin-drop silence. We look forward to welcoming Sophie to the Music department in September.
