Singing Prizes and ‘An Evening of Song’, Sunday 25th February in the Maidment Auditorium
We are blessed with a great number of very fine singers at Shrewsbury School – as evidenced by last week’s performances of ‘Rebecca - The Drowned Bride’, as well as our Chapel services and concerts. A large number of them will be taking part in the annual Singing Prizes on Sunday 25th February from 1pm (not 2pm as advertised in the Fasti) in the Maidment Auditorium. Many of the singers will also be performing later the same day in an ‘Evening of Song’. This concert will feature some wonderful solos and ensembles, including preview items from Mozart’s ‘The Magic Flute’, which will be performed at School in April. Parents and friends are very welcome. Further details are included under ‘Forthcoming Events’ below.
