On Sunday evening members of the Chapel Choir joined ranks with the Epsom College Choral Society to present a rousing performance of Mozart’s Requiem. It was a fantastic opportunity to work with professional orchestra and soloists. Rehearsals had begun earlier in the afternoon, and by the time the large audience arrived at Big School both the Choral Society and Chapel Choir were in fine voice, and presented music-making of a very high quality.
It was a particular pleasure to welcome back Elspeth Marrow (OE Crawfurd) as the alto soloist. She was delighted to be back, at Epsom she performed in her first two operas (The Coronation of Poppea and Hansel & Gretel), and it is where her love for opera and classical music began. After leaving Epsom, Elspeth studied at Royal Holloway University and then went on to study at the Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music on the masters and opera courses respectively.
