Last Saturday the school’s Choral Society performed Mozart’s wonderful Requiem at the beautiful Mosteiro de São Bento in the city centre. It was the first time that the choir had performed outside of the school, and we were absolutely delighted to perform to a huge and highly appreciative audience who rewarded us with a standing ovation at the end.
Mozart’s Requiem had been a significant but highly enjoyable challenge for the choir and we were delighted to perform with the excellent support of a number of fine musicians, including friends from the Teatro Municipal orchestra and soloists from USP, both institutions with which our Director of Music has enjoyed a close association. Our own Miss Lima was one of the excellent soloists and we were joined by several other members of staff, parents, pupils and friends of the school in the choir.
The St. Paul’s School Choral Society is an amateur choir which comprises pupils, staff, parents, former pupils, parents of former pupils and friends of the school. It meets each Friday from 3.45 - 5 pm at the school with the aim of having fun and making music together. New members are always welcome and we are now preparing for Christmas Carol service in time for the performance on 12th December at 7 pm. Do please contact Mr Ward via our website contact form if you would like to join the choir.
