The Chorister School Summer Concert will be held in the Chapel at Ushaw College on Wednesday 10 May at 7pm.
The Cathedral Choristers, the Chorister School Galilee Choir and our Instrumental Ensembles will perform a programme of music for a summer’s evening, to raise funds for the Music Department / Otjikondo School in Namibia. The concert is followed by refreshments.
Tickets (priced £20 per person including refreshments) are available from Mrs Appleton (firstname.lastname@example.org) at The Chorister School. Please do email her by return if you wish to purchase a ticket.
THE CHORISTER SCHOOL has a splendid position in the middle of Durham, tucked away behind Durham Cathedral. As a fully co-educational Preparatory School, the School has an excellent academic record, with many pupils transferring to their chosen Senior Schools with Scholarship awards (academic, sport, music, art and drama). In January 2017 the School was inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate who judged the School to be ‘excellent’ – the highest rating available.
There is a very vibrant music department and individual instrumental lessons are available for almost all instruments. In addition to the Cathedral Choristers and the Galilee Choir, there are other choirs and ensemble groups that rehearse throughout the week and perform in concerts or services regularly. Art and sport are also strong at The Chorister School, and there is a wide selection of after school activities each week.
OTJIKONDO SCHOOL in Namibia was founded over 20 years ago and is a fully residential boarding school for boys and girls between the ages of seven and thirteen. Many of its costs including all the housing and feeding of pupils and staff together with extra curricular activities such as music have to be found from charitable donations. Thanks to the generosity of many since 2011 the school has a collection of musical instruments and now needs support to continue to pay its full time music teacher. Piano, violin, singing, flute and recorder are currently being taught by Faustinus who is both dedicated and inspired. Your help is sought to enable this valuable work to continue. The school is already renowned for its music and is one of a very few schools in the country to have a full time teacher of music.
