St Peter's School
Touring is an integral part of our musical programme and provides the pupils with fantastic opportunities to perform to a wide range of audiences in some fabulous locations, as well as connecting with the culture of other countries through educational visits.
Following on from a highly successful tour of New York in 2013,
the Chapel Choir, Brass Ensemble, Wind and Swing Bands
undertook a wonderful tour of Paris and the surrounding area in
2015. The ensembles performed in a number of different venues,
including singing and playing to an audience of 300 in a formal
concert in the beautiful cathedral at Chartres, and entertaining
a large crowd as part of the Performing Arts programme on the
Videopolis stage at Disneyland. The highlight of the tour was
perhaps though to finish at Notre Dame singing the Mozart
Missa Brevis in F, with a quartet of Sixth Form soloists, as part of
the evening Mass with a congregation of around 1000 present.
In 2016, the Wind Band and the Choir toured Barcelona, singing mass in Barcelona Cathedral. Our next tour is to Venice in 2018
