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
Three of our four daughters have been boarders at the Senior School following our unexpected move to Hong Kong in 2012. One moved back to board at Windermere following two years in Hong Kong and our youngest can't wait to follow in her footsteps and return as an overseas boarder into Year 9. We cannot fault the standard of education and care which the girls have enjoyed throughout their Windermere journeys. In particular, we love the location - and the way in which the Lake District becomes part of the curriculum - and the international flavour of the Senior School.
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.
