Cantiacorum working in harmony with Choral Scholar!
Throughout my school career, singing has been an important part of my musical development. Prior to studying at the King’s School, singing was my weakest discipline and I had little confidence in my ability. However, learning proper singing technique in my lessons and being involved in so much choral music at school has allowed my confidence to grow significantly. My early entry into the school’s flagship choral ensemble ‘The Crypt Choir’, and subsequently into ‘The Chamber Choir’ (the school’s specialist chamber ensemble) has enabled me to discover a love of choral music. Furthermore, my election to sing in the all Girls’ close-harmony group, which I now lead, has been invaluable and highly enjoyable. The singing lessons that I have had for the past 5 years have enabled me to achieve much - partaking and performing in several operatic projects, such as Mozart’s ’The Marriage of Figaro’ and Handel’s ‘Theodora’, whilst currently singing one-to-a-part in our chamber music programme. I am also proud to have now obtained my Grade 8 singing with distinction. This would all not have been possible if it weren’t for the support of my singing lessons or Cantiacorum Foundation. Singing is a part of my musical identity, and I am grateful to have had so many wonderful opportunities.
