Event Sign-Up Form 2023
Schola is delighted to invite alumni to attend a small reunion event in Oxford on Saturday 3 June, in connection with the concert to be given by the current choir together with the Freiburg-based Raschèr Saxophone Quartert. The event is particularly aimed at alumni from Schola's second decade but others are welcome if space allows.
The format is an informal get-together to sing some of the iconic works from Schola's core repertoire in the 1970s. Nick Cleobury has offered to conduct, and sessions will take place in the new Auditorium in the Levine Building at Trinity College. Hilary Boulding, Chair of Trustees and President of Trinity College, has very kindly offered tea in the President's Lodgings during the break between singing sessions. The objective is to sing and socialise together and have fun. We hope you will also stay to attend the concert in the University Church at 7.30pm, where there will seating areas reserved to enable you to sit with other alumni, should you wish to do so.
