Ten former Wallace High School students gathered at the Clonevin Park School this week for the inaugural meeting of the Past Choristers’ Society. Former Head boy, Gareth Patterson, a second year medical student at Queen’s University, explained,
“We all had amazing times as members of the chamber choir, Cappella, and enjoyed performances here in Northern Ireland and across Europe. Whilst many of us are still involved in music at university, we felt it would be a great idea to get together in Wallace again and we have lots of innovative ideas for the future of the society.
We really hope that former students of Wallace who are interested in Music will come along and join us – there’s definitely no age limit and as far as we’re concerned, the more the merrier.”
Head of Music at Wallace, David Falconer , went on, “I was delighted to catch up with the former students and am looking forward to meeting more in the coming weeks. The first date for the Past Choristers’ Diary in the school’s Christmas Concert which will take place in Lisburn Cathedral on 12th December.
I would encourage any part pupils who were involved in the musical life of the school to come along to the next meeting at 7.30 pm on Monday 29th September.
Further information can be obtained by via the school’s website or by phoning the school office on 92672311.”
