KES Carol Service 2022

The end of last term saw the first Carol Service since the pandemic. We were thrilled to be able to return to Birmingham Cathedral where KES Choir sung traditional Christmas carols and songs including Betelehemu, a traditional Nigerian song, and John Rutter’s arrangement of Sans Day Carol. It was a beautiful atmosphere enjoyed by a large congregation. Well done to everyone in KES Choir, the brass ensemble, the percussion ensemble, and the readers. Thank you to Canon Andy and everyone at Birmingham Cathedral for making us welcome.

Christmas Concerts

On Sunday 11th and Monday 12th December last term, pupils from KES and KEHS performed three marvellous concerts in the Ruddock Hall Performing Arts Centre. 11 music ensembles from across both schools performed repertoire spanning from Beethoven’s Symphony no.8 and Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on Christmas Carols, to jazzy Christmas numbers such as Jingle Bell Rock! Well done to all who performed.
