The St Edward’s Singers is a non-auditioned choir designed specifically for parents, staff, neighbours and friends
t usually meets on Friday evenings and rehearses in the Weston Recital Room for two concerts a year (October and April) – given in the Chapel or St Michael’s Church, Summertown – with a professional orchestra and school choirs. Founded in 2003 by Neville Creed, the Singers have put up on a long series of successful concerts. The most recent concert was Mozart’s Requiem – the Barenreiter Edition. It formed part of the School’s Gaudy celebrations and took place in the Sheldonian on Thursday 4th July, and included a performance of Mozart’s Horn Concerto by one of the pupils. The Choir is now run by St Edward’s Director of Music and the Arts, Alex Tester, and the Choir are actively recruiting for new members for the upcoming season.
