Cross-trust orchestra rehearsals for Miss Saigon

Over recent weeks the music department at St Katherine’s has been a hive of activity working with our first ever cross-trust orchestra to provide the music for Miss Saigon. The orchestra is made up of 17 players including students from both Bristol Cathedral Choir School and St Katherine’s School alongside staff from both schools and two professional musicians who we have worked with for a number of years. The orchestra is being conducted by Mr Nicholls, Director of Specialism at the Cathedral Schools Trust. 

The students have been absolutely amazing, tackling such a challenging and long musical. The show lasts over two hours and the music literally never stops! They have learnt the parts in their own time and have already put in endless hours of practice. They have only had two joint rehearsals but are already making a fabulous sound. All of them have worked so hard and have thoroughly impressed Miss Adams with their commitment, dedication, enthusiasm and musicality. 

Miss Saigon will be performed in the St Katherine’s lecture theatre on Tuesday 17th, Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th December. Tickets are available to purchase on ParentPay.
