Our History

A Prelude to Christmas

A fabulous concert at St.John's Norwood

St. John's church in Upper Norwood hosted the Jubilate choir with a concert on Saturday 30th November. The choirs are honoured to have been invited to join a large ensemble of singers and musicians to perform 3 carol settings by John Rutter with the Jubilate choir, and to perform a beautiful set of songs and solo pieces in their own right. A large audience enjoyed the excellent solos and group pieces in the first half of the concert, then at the end of a long, long day, some superb singing gave a moving and memorable rendition of the three Christmas carols.

John commented:

"The Choirs did EVER so well.  We had a wonderful turn out and I was so pleased to find a moment to speak to several parents, for once! Our young singers excelled themselves for three reasons:
1. The acoustics were amazing;
2. The building itself - one of the largest Anglican churches in South London;
3. The other musicians were really good and everyone tried hard to fit the occasion.....and succeeded!    
So, well done to everyone.....there were lots and lots of lovely comments and I was very proud of you all!
Many thanks to the Mums and Dads who assisted behind the scenes today; some of you sang, some helped in various other ways (sound system, moving choir, sitting with the Choir, etc.).  This support made a big difference!"
