It sounds really lovely, but have they considered that for most children those dates are actually in term time? There is so much beautiful singing by children in Cambridge currently, but woefully little being done to address the fact that privately educated children are significantly over-represented in these choirs and singing opportunities. Scheduling this sort of event on dates when ONLY privately educated children can attend really doesn't send out a very welcoming message...
