Church of the Redeemer, Bryn Mawr presents
An Evensong with the
Benenden School Chapel Choir
On Sunday, March 29 (Palm Sunday), at 4pm, The Redeemer will welcome the chapel choir from the Benenden School to sing a Choral Evensong. Set in the picturesque Kent countryside in southeast England, Benenden is one of the U.K.’s foremost girls’ boarding schools, with a distinguished history, many notable alumnae, and a proud musical tradition. The chapel choir consists of thirty girls between the ages of 14 and 18. Many of the girls go on to hold choral scholarships at Oxford, Cambridge, and London Universities.
The Benenden Chapel Choir has sung in such notable spaces as Canterbury, St. Paul’s, and Southwark Cathedrals; St. John’s Smith Square; St. Martin-in-the-Fields; Notre-Dame, De La Trinité and La Madeleine in Paris.
The Benenden Chapel Choir has added The Redeemer to its list of churches to visit while on its East Coast tour of America.
Following Evensong, there will be a welcome reception in the Assembly Room of the church’s Parish House. A free-will offering will be taken during the service. Children are always welcome; Evensong tends to be under an hour in length.
