It has been another incredible week in the run up to Christmas here at The Purcell School!
ALUMNUS BEN HAVINDEN WILLIAMS
has just been appointed to the bass section of Welsh National Opera Orchestra.
won the Toddington Music Society’s Young Musician of the Year contest.
FIRST STUDY SINGERS
attended a performance of The Marriage of Figaro given by the students on the Opera Course at the Royal College of Music. It took place in the Britten theatre in the college. It was a great opportunity for the singers to see one of the finest operas in the repertory and hear the standard achieved by singers at this level. The only disappointment was a lack of ice-cream during the interval!
NCO’s LAST PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR
takes place this Sunday evening at The Southbank Centre. The National Children’s Orchestra, which includes a small number of Purcell students, will be performing along side renowned soloist Nicola Benedetti. More information on the event can be found here.
