Music is a human activity that transcends national and cultural barriers, and it is therefore a particularly appropriate focus for an international school. As Catholics, we have the additional privilege of being able, through our worship, to participate in the prayer of the whole Church, in heaven and on earth, and in this, choral music plays an important part.
The Choir regularly gives concerts and has a busy programme of carol-singing for the sick and elderly in the advent season. It has enjoyed international tours to Sweden, Italy, England and Wales, as well as around France, recorded three CDs and appeared on UK and French TV and radio. In 2012, the Choir sang in the Vatican and at the Pontifical Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore.
In relation to academic work, singing in choir also has a special role to play: it deepens our appreciation for the study of music, it introduces us to Latin and other languages, it develops mathematical ability and it improves our concentration. It is also an exercise in teamwork.
