The City of London School for Girls’ Senior Choir, Orchestra and String Ensemble present a concert to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the school.

Students from across the school community, past and present, will join forces in celebration of a remarkable school that is leading the education of young women. The concert this evening will raise funds for the school’s bursary appeal, which in the 125th year has set ambitious targets to ensure all girls, regardless of financial background, have access to a life-changing education.

Alice Farnham joins the concert to conduct the String Ensemble. Alice has been leading Women Conducting courses for the Royal Philharmonic Society, many of which have been hosted at City of London School for Girls. Paul Griffiths will be working with Music Scholars to devise a new work that will receive its premiere at the start of the concert.
