The Junior School’s Head of Instrumental Music and Performances Mr Wallace wrote an opera over lockdown – based on a chilling ghost story by Charles Dickens, The Signalman.

Mr Wallace’s composition had its first workshop recording earlier this week in The Ship, with Senior School Music Teacher Mr Clements singing the lead.

Miss Ferro made sure she was sitting in on this display of Music Department talent and was bowled over: “It was absolutely compelling, really phenomenal; ethereal and ghostly… it was such a privilege to hear live music, a wonderful, wonderful experience.”
