The Whitgift Foundation presents an inaugural concert featuring a spectacular programme of choral and orchestral music performed by young musicians and staff from Old Palace of John Whitgift, Trinity and Whitgift Schools.
The concert promises to be a historic and momentous event in celebration of both our Founder, Archbishop John Whitgift, and the re-opening of the Fairfield Halls. The programme includes a range of exciting repertoire including Grieg’s Piano Concerto, 1st Movement, the exquisite Rutter Gloria and two world premières written especially for the occasion. All proceeds from this concert will be donated to The Whitgift Foundation Bursary Appeal.
