Norwich High School for Girls Choral Concert 2024
“The Choral Concert is a headline public event in our Senior School music calendar, showcasing the considerable talent of our students and also featuring our community choir and orchestra of staff, alumnae, parents and friends. Rehearsals started in early January, and we are always blown away by the commitment of the community of musicians who help deliver to an exceptional standard year on year.”
We are delighted to announce the programme for the concert:
Haydn’s Cello Concerto No.1 Movement 1 performed by Year 13 Music Captain Eve Kelleway.
A selection of works performed by our Chamber Choir under the Direction of Head of Instrumental Studies, Mrs Sarahjane Stephen.
Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque under the Direction of Head of Instrumental Studies, Mrs Sarahjane Stephen.
Rimsky-Korsakov’s Clarinet Concerto performed by Year 13 Music Captain Zara Hunter.
Fauré’s Requiem under the Direction of Director of Music, Mr Mark Hall.
Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem is a serene choral masterpiece that offers a comforting and intimate reflection on death, characterised by its gentle melodies, subtle orchestration, and a focus on tranquillity rather than dramatic intensity.
Dvořák’s Heirs of the White Mountain under the Direction of Director of Music, Mr Mark Hall.
Dedicated by the composer with ‘feelings of deep gratitude to the English people’, Dvořák’s Heirs of the White Mountain is a patriotic and dramatic choral work that commemorates the 200th anniversary of the Battle of White Mountain, showcasing the composer’s nationalist sentiments through powerful orchestration, bold choral writing, and a celebration of Czech history.
