Our two Christmas Concerts constitute the musical highlight of the Michaelmas Term and bring together the best of Abingdon's larger ensembles in a programme which is repeated on consecutive nights. All the senior bands, orchestras and choirs will be singing, including the entire First Year, in music of an often Christmas flavour. Come and join us for a celebration of musical talent at the end of term!
We are delighted to announce the return of the young, award-winning Fitzroy String Quartet.
Following an afternoon chamber music workshop with Abingdon pupils, the quartet will be playing an attractive evening programme of music by Haydn, Bartok and Beethoven. This includes the Beethoven Opus 74, with which the quartet recently won the Beethoven Prize at the International Chamber Music Competition at the Penderecki Centre in Luslawice, Poland.
The multi award-winning a cappella sextet The Sons of Pitches follow their critically acclaimed SOP TV tour with a concert at the Amey Theatre, supported by the Abingdon Community Choir and hosted by the Arts and Sports Community Interest Company.
