We have just heard the exciting news that Schola has passed the vigorous test to be accepted as a visiting choir at Westminster Abbey next year. The choir received excellent references and has been building an outstanding reputation through its hugely successful cathedral visits over the last few years. Margie Simper, Director of Music said: “This is a huge honour and a testament to the amazing sound of Schola, and to the choir's professionalism.”
The date for their performance is Sunday 4 August 2019 – an occasion not to be missed! Westminster Abbey is one of the UK’s most popular visitor attractions, which has hosted the coronation of the nation’s Kings and Queens since 1066. Its world-famous choir sings at eight services each week during the choir term and choral services continue out of term sung by visiting choirs. Normally, visiting choirs are given the opportunity to sing one service on a week day but Schola has been offered a Sunday, which means they will perform at three services.
