The Henry

Henry Beaufort Choir sing with BBC singers

On Wednesday 20th January 2016, The Henry Beaufort Chamber Choir took part in a very exciting vocal workshop with the BBC Singers.

The workshop took place in the beautiful New Hall at Winchester College, in the city. The Henry Beaufort Chamber Choir were among 80 other students from Winchester schools, and spent the morning learning to sing the famous Ode To Joy from the last movement of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony.

It was a fantastic opportunity for Chamber Choir to receive vocal coaching from, and to sing with, top class professional musicians. The aim of this workshop was to prepare the students for a performance that they will be taking part in on Saturday 30th January at Winchester Cathedral, where over 200 students from Winchester and Germany will come together with the Hampshire Youth Orchestra to perform the renowned last movement of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony.
