EX CATHEDRA | Inspiring singing

SLEEPERS AWAKE - cantatas by Bach & Dilnot Johnson

‘Once we start to act, hope is everywhere.’ Words by Greta Thunberg, Kurt Masur and David Hart inspire Liz Dilnot Johnson’s love song to the planet, whilst Bach's 'Wachet auf' calls us to rise and prepare.

Wayfaring Stranger

This summer we were unable to give our end of year concert. However, our Senior Academy of Vocal Music was given the opportunity to create a music video at Vada Recording Studios. The choir had an amazing day working with world renowned musicians and technicians. An experience they will all remember for the rest of their lives! This is the result!
