As some of you will know St John's Schola Cantorum went to Rome last weekend, principally because they were invited to take part in the International Choral Competition CHORUS INSIDE Rome 2022. They won! They were placed Best Choir out of 18 competing ensembles from all over the EU, and best performance. I also understand, though the maestro hasn't confessed it yet, that a certain Director of Music, Domenico Gioffre, may have won a trophy for Best Conductor.
For more news about this and their adventures, including singing for the Vigil Mass at St Peter’s Basilica, keep your eyes open on the website, and talk to them yourselves this Sunday.
You can hear them sing live at mass on Sunday mornings at 10.30 am and at the Carol services on the weekend of the 17th and 18th December.
