Westonbirt students perform at Highgrove House
Nine talented Westonbirt singers and musicians were invited to perform at Highgrove, the King’s private residence in Gloucestershire on Friday evening.
The event was an annual dinner, following their AGM, held by the Highgrove Royal Warrant Holders Association in the Orchard Room with the kind permission of The King. Royal Warrant Holders are tradesmen to certain members of the Royal Family; the main headquarters of the Association is in London near to Buckingham Palace, however it has five local associations near the various Royal residences which are served principally by ‘local’ companies. These are Windsor, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Sandringham and Highgrove with the latter’s Association founded following a meeting held in the Reading Room at Westonbirt.
Westonbirt staff and students performed oboe, piano and singing solos, as well as group pieces as part of a musical interlude before dinner was served. The audience was clearly delighted with the lovely voices and high standard of playing and the School has received some fantastic feedback from attendees, which included Westonbirt alumni.
