SES pupils sing their hearts out
Pupils from across the Stamford Endowed Schools took part in the annual Carol Service which runs over three nights in December. The service included nine lessons and a range of carols led by the choirs.
Stamford School Hall was full of parents and staff across all three nights, whilst pupils from the brass band and school choirs performed their well-rehearsed pieces.
Principal of the Stamford Endowed Schools, Stephen Roberts, said “The SES Carol Services are always a much-anticipated part of the festive season. The exceptional range of talent on display has been remarkable, with magnificent singing by the choirs and note-perfect performances from the band. I would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work and dedication over the last couple of months; it has certainly been worth it.”
Giles Turner, Director of Music at the Stamford Endowed Schools, said: “During the last two weeks the singers have performed two Advent services, carols at Burghley Hall for Combat Stress, five sessions of carol singing for the Evergreen Trust and the three carol services in Stamford School Hall. These final three services, this year accompanied by the Schools’ Concert Band, have been one of the highlights of the year for the 165 students involved and the audiences of around 400 people per night."
