On Saturday 12 March, we will be holding our annual Spring Concert at Carver Church, Windermere. The Concert will include work by John Rutter, Faure and Vivaldi.
Rutter’s suite of eleven traditional songs, ‘The Sprig of Thyme’, will be performed by the Choir. The Sprig of Thyme is a selection of traditional songs of the British Isles, drawing together long-standing favourites as the ‘Willow song’ and ‘The Miller of Dee’, with lesser known gems as ‘O can ye sew cushions’ and ‘The Sprig of Thyme’. Many new settings for choir and small instrumental group have been created by John Rutter, especially for this collection.
The Girls’ Chamber Choir will also perform the Messe Basse by Faure and Olivia Bell will play Flute Concerto V with string orchestra.
Admission: Adults £10.00 | Concessions £8 | Students free.
7.30pm | Carver Church, Windermere
The first time my daughter and I visited the school she said to me “that is a happy school no question.” The scholastic achievements of the school are evident and an easy measure for a school to demonstrate. What is hard to quantify is the holistic development of a pupil at which, in my experience, Windermere School excels.
Windermere School is such a unique community to be a part of. Not only is it based in a truly beautiful and inspiring national park, but the environment created by staff and students alike makes for an incredibly supportive, proactive, exciting and international place of learning in which everyone can thrive and be the best they can be.
