Sedbergh School Chapel Choir Tour of the Italian Lakes took place at the start of the summer break, starting in Sirmione. The group, led by Mr Seymour, Mr Allinson and Miss Hargreaves, stayed on Lake Garda, rehearsing in their hotel and enjoying the swimming pool and lakeside views during the afternoon.
Amazing sounds came from the choir in the incredible setting of Madonna Della Corona, set into a rock face and the choir’s concerts in Venice were featured by Chorus Venezia and well attended by 24 choir families, with the opportunity to tour Venice – fantastic singing, food, family and friends; and then on to the final concert of the tour at Chiesadi Santa Maria in Organo.
The group had some time to unwind at the funfair, splitting into two groups at Gardaland – thrill-seekers and those who preferred the likes of the caterpillar ride – and then on to Verona Opera House.
We look forward to a full report and congratulate the new senior choristers for 2017-18:
Head Chorister, Lucy Preston
Choir Secretary, Pawel Swilo
Head of Chamber Choir, Hester Churchouse
