The King’s School has a rich tradition of music and dance within the community. Pupils are regular visitors to local residential homes to sing, dance and play to residents, who in turn are invited to special services in the Cathedral. John Pennington, DoM, runs the King’s Community Choir and there are plans to link up with Opera Boots to promote opera in the school.  Amongst many other projects, King’s regularly hosts a programme bringing together pupils from local schools to practise and perform at its ‘Orchestra in an Afternoon’, culminating in a performance for all their parents.  Junior pupils will be performing in Carl Davis’ Last Train, to mark the 80th anniversary of the last Kindertransport to leave Prague – part of 2019 Three Choirs Festival. The Cathedral boy and girl choristers are also involved with a termly outreach/community programme alongside the Cathedral Junior Choir.
