It is always an immense privilege for our pupils to work with internationally-renowned vocal ensemble Voces8, and Tuesday 15 September 2015 was no exception. It was particuarly special that two of the group are Old Bedfordians – Barnaby Smith (97-02) and Paul Smith (95-00).
The Consort Choir, comprising boys from our school and girls from Bedford Girls’ School, took part in a workshop with the group in the afternoon. Singing alongside such seasoned professionals is an amazing experience, and of course we got to hear the whole concert in evening.
The acoustics in the Quarry Theatre revealed every detail of the group’s performance and would have shown up any imperfections, had there been any! The joint pieces went really well and we look forward to our next joint venture with Voces8.
