St Peter's 13-18
The St Peter’s School community enjoyed a virtual Christmas Concert on Wednesday 9 December, co-ordinated by the St Peter’s 13-18 Music Department.
The concert featured performances from year group instrumental and vocal ensembles from St Peter’s 13-18. The concert began with baroque music from the Upper Sixth Form String Quartet and moved through different time eras, before concluding with the Girls’ and Boys’ Barbershop groups who entertained the audience with a selection of Christmas classics.
Each performance was recorded in year group bubbles in the School Chapel and edited together to create the final production for the school community to enjoy at home.
Mr Paul Miles-Kingston, Director of Music at St Peter’s 13-18, said: “The Christmas Concert and Carol Service have been a monumental task for the pupils and the music team who edited these productions. Thank you to our music teachers for their hard work this term and a massive well done to everyone involved.
“We are looking forward to more events next term and hopefully a return to more live performances in due course.”
Music has continued to thrive at St Peter’s this term. We have offered 2000 individual music lessons with 23 different ensembles running each week.
The Upper Sixth Chapel Choir performed a beautiful Evensong service at York Minster on Monday 7 December and there is another opportunity to hear the pupils from St Peter’s 13-18 perform as part of the St Peter’s School annual Carol Service on Friday 11 December.
