Windermere School Choir will be performing Messiah. We are delighted that former student, international opera singer, Adam Smith, will be singing the Tenor role.
The School Choir will be joined by members of Cumbria Baroque Choir, Pro Nobis, along with Windermere and Bowness Community Choir and former students.
Born in Northern England, Adam Smith attended Windermere School, finishing his studies in 2006. It was at Windermere School, under the tutelage and guidance of Janet McCallum, that Adam’s talent for music and singing was able to thrive, leading him to the fast-rising career he has. This season he made his debut at the Opéra national de Bordeaux, in the title role of Les contes d’Hoffmann, in a new production by Vincent Huguet, conducted by Marc Minkowski. Next, he will make his debut at the English National Opera as B.F. Pinkteron in Madame Butterfly led by Martyn Brabbins.
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.
