A busy week for the Music Department!



26th Nov 2018 – Last Monday, Cantores and the Chamber Choir performed at the annual SASSMA (Secondary Schools Music Association) concert, which brings all the secondary schools in St Albans come together at the Alban Arena. Thank you to all those parents who came to support our school at this concert – the girls performed really well and were a credit to Loreto.

Then, on Thursday over 150 students took part in our annual Autumn Term concert. They all performed magnificently to a packed hall, with items varying from Sibelius to Grease to Panic at the Disco! A huge thank you to all those students who took part, especially those who played solos. Particular thanks also to the peripatetic music teachers who gave up their own time to lead flute choir, guitar ensemble and our newly created brass ensemble.  Finally, thanks to Mrs Brown and Mrs Carter for organising and overseeing the whole event.
