In addition to our termly events and concerts, our Foundation Scholars sing the Office of Evensong every Wednesday during term time. The Foundation Scholars are specially selected from Pimlico Children’s Choir on musical ability.
The Foundation Scholars participate in weekly rehearsals on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during which they learn to read music and cover a wide range of repertoire.
The Foundation Scholars are supported by eight Teacher-Singers (young, professional singers) who mentor the children at rehearsals on Wednesdays, and provide one-to-one vocal, instrumental and theory tuition throughout the week in-school.
In recent terms, we have teamed up with the Gallery Choir of Westminster Cathedral Choir School for joint Evensongs in Pimlico. Earlier this term, the Foundation Scholars also sang singing Mass with the Choristers of Westminster Cathedral, and took part in a day trip to Oxford, to sing with the world-famous Choir of Magdalen College.
Evensongs take place at St Gabriel’s Church, Warwick Square at 5pm every Wednesday in term time.
Owing to the Covid-19 outbreak, there are currently no Evensong services planned. Information will appear here when we are able to sing services in Church once again.
