the choir is joined by a small orchestra with piano
duo and organ, plus the Shrewsbury House School Choir
(Surbiton). The performance takes place on Saturday

in the season, the Choir will perform works by Mozart, including
the 'Great' Mass in C Minor, at London's Cadogan Hall. The
choir also participates in services at some of Britain's major
cathedrals and churches. This year, the Choir sang at St George's
Chapel, Windsor Castle and undertook its annual cathedral
residency at Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. It is scheduled to
sing the choral services at Southwark Cathedral on a Sunday
in February 2012.
