  • The Christmas Concerts – Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 December at 7pm – The two popular Christmas Concerts will take place next week and they provide a platform for all the School's senior orchestras and bands. For those new to the School they will give a sense of the range and depth of Abingdon's music. Tickets are available in advance from the school's website (Friday is sold out) and we look forward to seeing many of you there.
  • Programme – The following ensembles will be performing: First Year Choir, Gospel Choir, Joint Chamber Choir, Brass Band, Big Band, First Wind Band, Chamber Orchestra, Second Orchestra, First Orchestra
  • Arrangements for performers – Parents of boys in the First Year have been circulated already with arrangements for the concert days. All the other performers will be required for final rehearsals after school on the Wednesday at times published in the Music School. Supper will be provided on both nights, and the school will bear the cost of one of these. Boys are reminded to wear white shirts as usual on concert days. Boys in the Big Band should be aware that their concert dress includes a colourful waist coat of their choice.
