17 choristers from St. Martin’s Ampleforth went to the Choir Schools Association Sports and Choral Day to join with other Northern Choir schools for a day of rounders and football followed by Evensong. This year the event was hosted by St. Peter’s Collegiate in Wolverhampton.
The girls of St. Martin’s Ampleforth won the rounders tournament and similarly the boys won the football competition against some strong competition. This is the second year in a row that St. Martin’s Ampleforth have won the Choir School tournament in both rounders and football.
The children played rounders and football magnificently
said Vincent Conyngham, Director of Music said:
The children played rounders and football magnificently and hearing over 100 treble choristers singing at Evensong was breathtaking.
