PGS Chamber Choir were delighted to have been awarded the Best Classical Music Act in the Portsmouth News annual News Guide Awards. The nomination was received for a concert they performed as part of the Portsmouth Festivities in June 2018 with Peter Philips and the Tallis Scholars (pictured). The Chamber Choir joined the professional choral group for performances of sacred Tudor music by Gibbons and Weelkes along with music by contemporary British composer, John Tavener. The choir was complemented on the blend and balance of the sound and the professionalism and poise with which they performed.
“It is a privilege to feel that the music making of our young musicians is so appreciated by the wider community,” said Mr Gareth Hemmings, Director of Music at The Portsmouth Grammar School. “I am proud that it has brought happiness and enjoyment to others, which is the greatest thing any musician could wish for.”
