Ballard School Concert

Ballard School Concert Beaulieu Abbey Church  10th July 2017

For the third year running the Abbey Church was privileged to host  the Senior Musicians Classical Concert.

The staff and pupils particularly enjoy performing in the wonderful acoustics of building.  It was a challenging programme demonstrating the talents of soloists, ensembles, choirs and orchestra;  thoroughly enjoyed by the appreciative audience.

On Thursday 33 of the Ballard Senior Musicians and Alumni set off for Spain where they will give performances in Monserrat Abbey,  Barcelona Cathedral and an open-air venue in Vilassar De Mar.  We wish them a safe and happy experience.
