Oxford Orpheus’ Celebration of Mozart in Support of the School’s Chorister Outreach Programme
Posted on 18th Feb, 2018
All who were present at the majestic Victorian Oxford Town Hall on Saturday evening were captivated by the power of Mozart's possibly best loved (and most widely performed) sacred works, the Mass in C Minor and Requiem.
The impressive performance of the choir and the young soloists, led by the inspiring conductor, Robert Dean, offered a wonderfully energised experience and served as a great reminder of Mozart's brilliance.
Indeed, there could not have been a more appropriate way to raise awareness of the work conducted as part of the School's Chorister Outreach Programme, the project that Oxford Orpheus chose to sponsor this year. As Mr Richard Murray, Headmaster of Christ Church Cathedral School, stated in his speech at the event and Dr Stephen Darlington, Director of Christ Church Cathedral Choir, in the preface of the concert's programme respectively, "Everyone at the School is hugely grateful to Oxford Orpheus for their most generous support. It is the School's determination to continue this wonderful work and give future generations of our county's primary school children the opportunity to experience the transformative effects of singing."
