The King’s School has a rich tradition of music and dance within the community. Pupils have been 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 pre-lockdown there were plans to link up with Opera Boots to promote opera in the school.  Amongst many other projects, King’s regularly hosted 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.  The Cathedral boy and girl choristers were involved too with a termly outreach/community programme alongside the Cathedral Junior Choir.

Looking forward to hearing more soon!
