Sedbergh Prep School Chamber Choir toured the colleges and historic sites of Oxford University and Blenheim Palace last weekend, performing two concerts to appreciative audiences. Previous destinations have included Edinburgh, Cambridge University and Canterbury.

Alongside their performances, pupils visited the Neuroscience Department at John Radcliffe Hospital and met the Choristers at Christchurch Cathedral.

Anastasia Micklethwaite, the Director of Music, said, “This type of experience is hugely motivating and we hope our pupils will come away with both high aspiration and happy memories that will last a lifetime”.

Those wanting to hear the Sedbergh musicians in action would be very welcome at any of their regular concerts in the  Holy Trinity Church, Casterton. Contact the school office on 015242 79200 for further details.
