We are yearning to sing together! During lockdown, the Chapel Choir, along with other groups at the school, produced some brilliant videos*. We are keen to do something similar for an online OI Presidents Event in October 2020. This will be the forerunner to a much bigger and live OI music event in October 2021, which we also hope you will be involved in. We hope to put together virtual performances of Tippett’s Steal away, an iconic Chapel Choir piece that I am sure most of you will remember. Would you like to take part? It would be fantastic to have past and present members of the Chapel Choir singing together. If you are interested, we have created a folder containing everything you need to take part:
This folder contains the backing track, PDF of the score and a recording of each part by Andrew if you need to familiarise yourself with the music again. The absolute final date for sharing videos is Monday 21st September, however the sooner you can send them in the better.
I am sure that lots of you have a network of friends from your time at the School, so please do spread the word about this venture and drum up support. If you have any queries or would just like to get in touch and let us know what you are up to, please see the email details below.
