Rehearsals have started for our annual Choral and Orchestral Concert at St Albans Cathedral, which takes place on Wednesday 1 July at 7.30pm. Here Mr Hathway conducts a first rehearsal of Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks, with as many players as he can fit in. With other works by Handel, Barber and Mozart, it promises to be another memorable evening.
Current and former pupils joined with Toby Davies's family yesterday at St Sepulchre's Church in the City of London as Toby's name was entered in the Book of Remembrance in the Musicians' Memorial Chapel. It was a very sad but also a very proud moment, especially seeing the number of very eminent musicians who were remembered alongside Toby. He is still missed at Purcell by all who knew him.
