We have arranged a trip to the De Montfort Hall in Leicester to listen to the Leicester Philharmonia Choir perform Handel’s Messiah on Saturday 8 April.
We will leave school at 5.30pm and expect to arrive back at Campion around 10.15pm.
The cost of the trip is £17. You can pay at the school office or by ParentPay.
Pupils can bring money to buy refreshments at the theatre or bring their own sweets, but any packaging must not make a noise during the performance. Pupil can wear their own clothes, but they must be suitable for a school trip.
Messiah is Handel's most popular work and has become one of the most renowned pieces of English sacred music. The majority of his music was popular during his lifetime and then fell into obscurity, but the Messiah has endured. It has strong historic associations with Leicestershire. The first parish performance of Messiah was at Church Langton. The Leicester Philharmonic Choir chose the work for their first concert on Christmas Day 1886. The Philharmonic Choir welcomes back Marylebone Baroque, an orchestra of period instruments, to perform Messiah just as Handel would have heard it.
If you would like your child to take part in this school trip, then please sign and return the slip along with £17 to the school office. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come basis.
