    Chapel Choir sing Evensong in Jesus College, Cambridge

    On Tuesday 27th September 2016, the School's Chapel Choir will sing Evensong in Jesus College, Cambridge.

    The Choir is in very fine form at the moment under its Director, Mr Alex Mason, and and numbers have blossomed since the recent introduction of full co-education. In the past two years the Choir has sung at Southwell Minster, Tewkesbury Abbey, The Queen’s College, Oxford and Manchester Cathedral.

    They are very much looking forward to singing in the beautiful surroundings of Jesus College Chapel, which is the oldest college chapel in Cambridge, having starting life as a church serving the 12th century Benedictine nunnery of St Radegund. 

    Directly after the service, there will be a drinks reception in the Webb Library in college, hosted by the Headmaster number of senior school staff including the Director of Music, Mr John Moore. Parents, OS and friends of the School are warmly invited to attend.

     We will be running a Supporters' Coach from Shrewsbury to Cambridge, which will depart from the Alington Hall at 1.30pm. Places are free but strictly limited. Please contact Nikki Bevan (nbevan@shrewsbury.org.uk) if you would like to come to the Evensong or to book a place on the coach.

    Music: The Swingles in Concert (Alington Hall)

    For more than half a century The Swingles have pushed the boundaries of vocal music. The seven young singers that make up today’s London-based group are driven by the same innovative spirit that has defined the five-time Grammy® winners since they first made waves in the 1960s. With two new albums in 2015 (Deep End and Yule Songs vol.II), The Swingles celebrate that legacy by starting a whole new chapter.

    In 1963, American-born Ward Swingle first assembled a group of Parisian session singers to sing Bach’s keyboard music.   The resulting album, Jazz Sebastian Bach, launched the Swingle Singers to fame. Since then their repertoire has grown to include a huge variety of music, as well as new original songs.

    They have released more than 50 recordings, winning five Grammy® awards and appearing on numerous film and TV soundtracks, including Sex and the City and Glee.

    We are delighted to welcome The Swingles to Shrewsbury School and the Alington Hall for a not-to-be-missed evening of beautiful vocal performances.

    Tickets £15.00, (£7.50 for 18s and under)
