Choir Tour 2016

Westholme Choir’s European Tour

Westholme School Choir has just returned from it’s annual summer tour on which they performed Mozart’s Requiem in Eglise La Madeleine in Paris; sang songs from Sister Act and Abba on stage at EuroDisney; placed wreaths remembering the centenary of the Somme at Tyne Cot Cemetery, Thiepval and the Menin Gate; and visited the European Parliament, the Atomium, Mini Europe, and a chocolate factory in Bruges plus the biennial carpet of flowers in the Grand Place in Brussels!

Director of Music Eric Millest said today “Whilst we have been on a summer music tour for the past 21 years and performed in such places as Copenhagen, Florence, Barcelona, Vienna and New York, this was one of our best ever trips as we included such a wide variety of events. It was also helpful in making the older students and staff too busy and tired to be worrying about the A Level results, which would not have mattered anyway as they were excellent too!”
