Friday 28th June at 7:45 PM
Tickets are now on sale for a concert at The Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace on Friday 28 June at 7:45pm with Baroque Music –Fit for a King! The Chapel Royal Choir will be performing with an orchestra of period instruments and they will be playing a selection of Baroque choral works and music including the coronation anthems composed for King George II by Handel. This will be a unique chance to hear these works performed with orchestra in The Chapel in aid of The Choral Foundation. Tickets available here for £25 or call 0844 482 7799.
Registration is now open for our chorister open day on Saturday 7th September 2013. Following the success of last year’s event,
the Chapel Royal is once again opening its door to local school boys so that they can come along and see what life is like as a
chorister at Hampton Court Palace. While the boys undertake a choral workshop with the Director of Music, parents will have a chance
to hear about the wonderful opportunities for their sons to gain a first class education in music for free. Participants will perform
in the Chapel Royal followed by tea with the choristers and a chance to ask lots of questions. Boys aged between 8 and 10 years who
love singing are encouraged to apply and see if they have what it takes to become a Chapel Royal chorister.
