Carol Service meeting point

We will meet in the dining hall tomorrow at 12.20pm, not in Room 30 as originally planned.  We will have any choir music left over, but Vocal Ensemble, you must sort yourselves out. DO NOT forget your music or packed lunch.  You must be prompt - we will leave without you if you are late.  Please spread the word.

Steve Reich Wider Listening

Dear Years 12 and 13,

I have put together playlist celebrating the genius of Steve Reich. Find it here or below.

Please listen to the music and find out about Reich and his fascinating approach to music and composition.

For starters, a really interesting video about his seminal work Music for 18 Musicians. Some of this feeds nicely into New York Counterpoint.
