In addition, children from Twickenham Preparatory School and also a Russian ballet school featured alongside professionals. Directed by Simon Iorio from Glyndebourne Festival Opera.
And during the Rugby World Cup, we ran a series of singing workshops. Since there were 20 countries participating, we sang a song representing each nation. Conducted by the noteworthy Nicholas Cleobury. Further support was gratefully received from the RFU and Richmond Council’s Civic Pride Fund.
