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.
