Longhill Singers Triumph in Brighton Festival Choral Event

Posted in Homepage, News - May 19th, 2017

As part of the Brighton Festival, 13 of our young, talented singers took part in a concert in the magnificent All Saints Church in Hove on Sunday 14th May.  For the past three months the dedicated students have been rehearsing with singing coaches from Glyndebourne, preparing four songs for the concert. This was part of a collaborative choir which included students from Longhill, Cardinal Newman, Hove Park, Varndean and PACA.

The students, with accompaniment from Brighton Youth Opera, performed in front of an audience of over 300 people inside the packed church.  Songs ranged from the swing classic Chattanooga Choo Choo to traditional Zulu folk song Siyahamba.   The Brighton Youth Orchestra also played a series of rarely-performed Chinese works, which received a rapturous reception from the audience.

The evening was a resounding success and we are incredibly proud of the students who were involved and a huge ‘thank you’ goes to Mrs Ali English, our Head of Music.
