St Aidan’s Chamber Choir, one of the school’s most beloved and prestigious musical ensembles, turns 30 this year and to mark its anniversary they will stage a spectacular evening concert at Ripon Cathedral on Saturday 2 April.
This great occasion will bring together their three current school choirs, the Symphony Orchestra and a “Chœur de Chœurs” made up of former members.
They are happy to say that many former members of the choir have already agreed to be there, as well as Cathy Roberts, former director of music at St Aidan’s, who founded the choir in 1992, and Greg Beardsell, founding member of the choir and now a well-known professional conductor and television presenter.

Additionally, they would like to invite the wider St Aidan community to participate as singers or musicians in the community choir and orchestra for some mass elements, including Haydn’s “The Heavens are Telling”.
As with its last appearance at St Aidan’s Golden Jubilee three years ago, it is open to all parents, carers, staff, students or anyone else with a connection to St Aidan.
There will be three evening rehearsals at St Aidan’s (15, 21 and 29 March) and one afternoon rehearsal at the Cathedral.
