Musics scholars shine

Mon, Mar 4th, 2024
Worth School

Our talented musicians provided a wonderful night of entertainment at our annual Scholars’ Concert last Thursday.

Fifteen scholars performed a wide range of styles from classical repertoire to modern rock drumming. There were performances with cello, piano, flute, trumpet, drums, clarinet and voice.

The concert took place in the Whitehead Room, which was the original music room of the main house on the country estate before it became Worth School.

Forthcoming musical events at Worth include the termly Ensembles Concert in the Abbey Church on Thursday 14 March from 7.45pm and Tenebrae at the same venue and time a week later.

Did you know that the Worth estate was once owned by Robert Whitehead, hence the Whitehead Room? His granddaughter Agathe Whitehead was the first wife of Georg von Trapp and the mother to his children. Captain von Trapp remarried after her death and became famous as the patriarch of the von Trapp Family Singers who were portrayed in the semi-fictional stage play and film ’The Sound of Music’.
