Performance at the Vatican

Performance at the Vatican


It was a very busy half term at Kilgraston School and after many months of rehearsing the Kilgraston Choir travelled to Italy for a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Eighty girls and ten staff travelled to Rome, accompanied by over one hundred parents to perform for Mass at the Vatican.

Director of Music Andrew McGarva said, “St Peter’s Basilica is an amazing venue to be able to perform in and the girls had been rehearsing throughout the term in preparation for this unique event. It was an inspirational venue and a very special musical occasion”

Whilst in Rome the choir was also hosted by the Royal Order of Malta at the Aventine Chapel where they were given a private tour of the Chapel and Gardens followed by delicious cakes. They also had the privilege of performing at the Sacred Heart School in Rome, situated at the top of the Spanish Steps and were able to view the original Mater Admirabilis painting, which is located in every Sacred Heart School across the world. The girls thoroughly enjoyed a tour of Rome, the Colosseum and spent many hours admiring the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel.

The trip was a wonderful experience for the pupils, staff and parents, which will be remembered for many years to come.
