Battle of the Bands 2017 provided another highly enjoyable and entertaining evening. This was the 13th year the event has been staged by the School and the competition was fierce as always. The judges choose a five-piece band called Public Citizens as the winner.
An evening rich with quality, talent and character - that was House Music 2017. The competition was won by St Mary's House but just six points separated first and seventh place. Each House performed a choral, solo and an ensemble piece. The solo pieces were particularly impressive, with a wide range of instruments including piano, viola, oboe, guitar, violin and accordion. A YouTube clip of the St Bede's boys performing 'No Woman, No Cry' can be seen here: https://youtu.be/psUuQBRsd8Y
The Worth School choir sang at the inaugural Worthians Christmas Carol Service at St Patrick's Church, Soho Square, London. They were accompanied by Worth Abbey organist Mr D'Arcy Trinkwon and the evening included readings from former students representing every decade of school life at Worth, starting with Mr Peter Pavry who left Worth Prep School in 1958 and concluding with Miss Jessica Coffin, the first Head Girl at the school.
In April 2016 the School's choir was privileged to sing alongside the Sistine Chapel Choir at a papal mass at St Peter's Basilica in Rome. You can hear them sing at three points of the service – at the beginning, after 1:07:50 and 1:34.40 – by clicking here.
