On Sunday seven pupils from Abingdon’s close-harmony ensemble joined pupils from three other Oxfordshire schools in a masterclass with the King’s Singers. In the afternoon, they worked on the Billy Joel song, And So it Goes, arranged by former King’s Singer and former Abingdon parent, Bob Chilcott. In the evening, the pupils were invited to join in the performance of this song at the end of the concert, which was the final event of the Dorchester Festival. This was a thoroughly enjoyable and productive experience for all concerned.
