The Consort Choir enjoyed a visit from choral conductor Neil
Ferris, Associate Chorus Director of the London Symphony Chorus, on Thursday 21
It was great to see a large number of boys from Bedford
School and girls from Bedford Girls School having a go at conducting the
choir, and Neil was very encouraging and positive in his comments. It
takes guts to stand in front of a group of singers and lead them, and the boys
and girls did really well, especially considering it was the first time many
had tried conducting. Neil will be making a return visit in the autumn.
