THE RGS CHOIR ARE BUSY rehearsing for a forthcoming European tour. Next February, 32 students aged between 11 and 18 will be travelling to Amsterdam to perform in prestigious choral venues such as the English Reformed Church and St Franciscus Xaverius. The choir's repertoire will offer a sophisticated selection of classical, popular and sacred music. The school's Director of Music, Zlatan Fazlic, says; "I believe that this is an opportunity for the choir team to build and improve the quality of our singing on an international stage."
Apart from giving performances, students are also looking forward to exploring sights and experiences such as the famous canals, Anne Frank's house, and the Van Gogh Museum. Mr Fazlic adds: "Amsterdam is a fascinating city... it will be lovely to visit the cultural landmarks."
The tour is particularly exciting for younger students, whose singing experience has thus far been limited to local venues.
