Uppingham School Concert Choir: Mozart Requiem

Uppingham School Concert Choir: Mozart Requiem
£15 Book Now

Formed by over three hundred pupils and thirty staff, and accompanied by a professional orchestra, Uppingham School Concert Choir presents a performance of Mozart’s incomparable Requiem. Left unfinished at the composer’s death in 1791, Franz Süssmayr’s completion allows the work to be realised in its exquisite entirety.

Two exceptionally gifted Upper Sixth students display their solo talents in the first half of the concert. Recital Competition winner Francesca Moorhead is the soprano soloist in Mozart’s effervescent motet Exsultate, Jubilate and Alexander Howard-Vyse opens the programme with Richard Rodney Bennett’s dazzling Saxophone Concerto.

This concert will finish at approximately 8.55pm

To book a wheelchair space or if you have any access requirements please phone the Box Office.

The free minibus service between Audley End Station and Saffron Hall will not be in operation for this event.
