The Schola begins its fortieth year with a major concert at Cadogan Hall on Tuesday 3 March where it will be joined by International renowned baritone Roderick Williams. Tickets are available now for this important milestone in the choir’s history. The programme includes the first performance of a new work by Roderick Williams, alongside music by Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Bach and Handel. There will be extracts from Puccini's Tosca and also some clips from a couple of the famous film scores that the Schola has been involved with over the years.
In addition, the choir will sing for a Mass celebrating the work of Father Dominic Allain during his seventeen years as Chaplain at the Vaughan (6 pm, Tuesday 28 January, Our Lady of Victories), for the Vigil Mass at Westminster Cathedral at 6 pm on Saturday 29 February, and for the School’s Ash Wednesday services (2.15 pm, 26 February, Our Lady of Victories).
In May the Schola will be come the first state school choir ever to lead BBC Radio 3's Choral Evensong broadcast when we sing for the First Vespers of Ascension on 20 May. The service will be recorded in the previous week at Our Lady of Victories, Kensington High Street.
In July the boys return to Covent Garden when twenty of them sing in Tosca, conducted by Sir Antonio Pappano.
