Tonight in our beautiful 13th century church of St Mary’s Collegiate we are delighted to welcome Capella, the senior chamber choir from The Wallace High School from Lisburn, Co. Antrim.  The choir has 30 members, and includes students from ages 14 to 18.

Capella has performed far and wide, from concert tours of Belgium, Paris (Notre Dame, La Madelaine) to the Czech Republic.  There were in Boston and New York last June, where they sang at Old North Church, Boston, MA, St Mary the Virgin, Times’ Square, NY, St John Devine Metropolitan Cathedral, NY and also Central station.

The choristers meet 5 mornings a week before school, one day after school and a couple of evenings per half term in order to deal with the extensive repertoire.

Tonight, Wednesday, June 30th the repertoire will include works by Vivaldi, Stanford, Weelkes, Britten and McGlynn.

Capella is directed by Mr David Falconer, Head of Music and is accompanied by Mr Theo Saunders, Organist and Master of the Choristers at St Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh.

    Wonderful experience to hear the beautiful harmony of this group in the Collegiate Church. Such mature sound for young people. It was both a pleasure and a privelege to be there. Love to hear more of them some time soon.
