Amazing summer for Trinity Boys Choir

Music | 6th September 2019

It was a typically busy and exciting summer for the Trinity Boys Choir.

First Year student Leo Jemison sang the challenging role of Miles in Britten’s The Turn of the Screw for Garsington Opera to great critical acclaim.

Fellow students from across our Second to Fifth years; Daniel Todd, Simeon Wren, Felix Barry-Casademunt, Stephan Dyakonov, Freddie Jemison and Aman de Silva, gave two outstanding trios that alternated performances of Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte at Glyndebourne throughout the summer holiday, including a BBC Proms concert and a live relay.

The choir made its nineteenth official appearance at the BBC Proms (it has also appeared in six other concerts alongside Glyndebourne or the Royal Opera House) on 21 July when 45 boys sang in Holst’s The Planets with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. There were a number of highly complimentary reviews, including one from The Evening Standard.

Finally, the boys recorded the soundtracks to forthcoming film releases Maleficent 2 and The King. Well done to all involved and here’s to another fantastic year!
