West Buckland Senior Choir and Chapel Choir joined forces with West Buckland Chamber Orchestra and Exmoor Sinfonia on Sunday to put on a spectacular choral concert, in St Hieritha’s Church, Chittlehampton.
The concert consisted of a programme covering a wide musical repertoire by composers from across the ages, including our own students! The Chapel Choir joined forces with Exmoor Sinfonia to perform ‘Zadok the Priest’ by Handel. This was followed by Boyce’s ‘Suite in A’ and Ungar’s ‘Ashokan Farewell’, which were both joint performances by the Chamber Orchestra and the Exmoor Sinfonia.
The audience were also greatly entertained by a very impressive solo performed by Year 8 Megan Brown during the performance of ‘Hear My Prayer’ by Mendelssohn, as well as Ella Clifton’s delightful rendition of ‘Something That’s Green’ by Menken and ‘Something Wonderful’ by Rodgers.
Perhaps the highlight of the evening was the playing of Year 13 student, Ted Kilvington’s, own composition entitled ‘Tides of Old’, based on his reflections of his time at the school. Ted is hoping to take up a place on the music composition course at Leeds College of Music.
The whole evening was a joyous occasion, greatly enjoyed by the audience of parents, supporters and people from Chittlehampton village.
