Singers from St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s School have performed with the Canterbury Choral Society on numerous occasions since 2017, including Mahler’s Eighth Symphony in 2017, 2007 and 2013, Charpentier’s Messe de Minuit pour Noël, and Langlais’ Missa Salve Regina, Vaughan Williams’ Hodie, Honegger’s Une Cantata de Noël, and Britten’s Saint Nicolas. The Upper Division Choir represents some of the best singers from the school’s choral ensembles. In the last ten years, members from these ensembles have performed at the Apollo Theater, in concert with Pete Seeger, and are frequently found singing at the Amsterdam House, a rehabilitation center for adults in Morningside Heights. They can also be heard at concerts and productions that are performed annually in the school. The choir is led by Canterbury’s Conductor, Jonathan De Vries.
St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s School is an independent, Episcopal day school and includes beginners (age 2) through grade 8. We strive to create an educational community that reflects unity in diversity: a unity of purpose and shared values among a population diverse in race, culture, and religious beliefs. The rich variety of gifts within the school community, provided by the different backgrounds of students, faculty, staff, and parents, prepares students to understand and contribute to a diverse, changing world.
