Loughborough Endowed Schools to perform Verdi's epic Requiem in their Spring Concert

The Loughborough Endowed Schools Music School will host its annual Spring Concert on 17th March, with a grand performance of Verdi’s great Requiem.

Taking place at De Montfort Hall in Leicester, the performance features four postgraduate students from the Royal College of Music.

Joining them will be all pupils in Year 7 from Loughborough Grammar School, Loughborough High School and Our Lady’s Convent School, as well as the Schools’ Choirs, Alumni, and leading Symphony Orchestra.

Richard West, Director of Music at the Loughborough Endowed Schools Foundation, is inviting the public to attend the first major concert of the year. He said:

“It will be fantastic to see and hear these fabulous postgraduate students from Royal College of Music performing with our choirs and orchestra. Our music department is constantly striving for excellence so it will be a great opportunity to showcase to the public the tremendous quality of performers that we have within the Foundation. The Spring Concert has been exceptionally well-attended in previous years, so we’re hoping to welcome even more music lovers to a packed DMH this year.”

The Loughborough Endowed Schools Foundation has an enviable reputation as a centre for musical excellence. It is one of only 170 establishments worldwide to hold the coveted title of an ‘All Steinway School’ thanks to its partnership with world-leading piano makers, Steinway & Sons.

The Loughborough Endowed Schools Spring Concert will begin at 7pm on Saturday 17 March at De Montfort Hall, Leicester. Tickets are priced at £12.50 for adults and £7.50 for under 19s and students.
