After House Singing, what next? - More Shrewsbury School musical delights this month
On Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th November, the Music Department and pupils at the school, along with the Choral Society, will be giving their annual St Cecilia Concert performances at 7.30 pm each evening in the Alington Hall. Tickets are free for both evenings, with a retiring collection in aid of School charities. The programme is the same for both evenings, and we would love to see as many parents, friends, staff and pupils as can make it to either performance. There is a wonderful variety of music in the programme, and some real highlights.
On Sunday 17th at 11.30 am there is also a Concert for Children in the Maidment Building, lasting about one hour. This is a wonderful chance for families and younger children to come along and get first-hand experience of perhaps new instruments, and to hear yet more of Shrewsbury's talented young players in performance. Admission is free and coffee and soft drinks are available beforehand in the Maidment Building.
And if any members of the Salopian community are within reaching distance of Machynlleth this evening (Friday 8th November), you are warmly invited to come and hear some of Shrewsbury School’s finest singers and instrumentalists perform a recital in one of Wales’ very best chamber venues, the Tabernacle.
Please see 'Forthcoming Events' below for further details of all of these concerts.
Happy 110th Birthday to the Shewsy!
The Shewsy (Shrewsbury House) Youth Club in Liverpool first opened for business on 10th November 1903, founded by Masters from Shrewsbury School, and to celebrate they have been holding a week of celebrations. A Sixth Form Social Studies group will be going to the Shewsy on Tuesday and will be taking a birthday cake with them.
The following was posted on the Shewsy’s website www.shrewsburyhouse.org.uk a few days ago: The club has come a long way from its humble beginnings in Mansfield Street to where it now stands in Langrove Street via Portland Place. Its longevity is testament to those who have believed in and acknowledged the value and positive impact the club has had in the community of Everton. The past stands us in good stead for the future and current members and staff are excited for what that holds.
