Joint Concert with St Paul’s Girls’ School

On Tuesday 14 September, St Paul’s School joined forces with St Paul’s Girls’ School to put on our Joint Concert.

This fixture, which always starts the musical year with gusto, had been hibernating due to COVID-19. The sense of excitement from young players from both schools to be able to put on a truly large-scale concert again was palpable. The musicians were put through their paces in a challenging programme that included Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms and Brahms’ Symphony No. 1.

Putting on a concert of this scope in such a compressed time frame was only possible due to an intense rehearsal schedule and the sheer determination of Pauline and Paulina alike. For them to be able to share their talents with a full Wathen Hall was also a joy.
