Ashfield School’s internationally-renowned school choir, Ashfield Vocal Ensemble, have recently returned from a tour that saw them sing, by invitation, in the stunning Lille Cathedral (pictured) and equally beautiful St. Salvator's Cathedral in Bruges.
Last year saw them perform, by special invitation, in Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris, and at Euro Disney. There are few choirs afforded the opportunity to sing in these impressive venues, much less school choirs, and the students produced spine-tingling performances on all occasions. Mr Atkins, Assistant Head of PE and Performing Arts, who accompanied the choir along with Choir Director Mrs Guy, said: “Once again the choir sang beautifully in several prestigious venues and were excellent ambassadors for Ashfield School and the Kirkby-in-Ashfield/Ronchin twinning association. It has always been, and continues to be, a privilege to work with such talented, hardworking and dedicated young people.”
