Alumna Tansy Castledine (1997, Music) leads school choir to Songs of Praise glory

Congratulations to Exonian Tansy Castledine (1997, Music) who has led St George’s College Chamber Choir to be crowned the BBC Songs of Praise Senior School Choir of the Year 2012.

Ms Castledine is Director of Music at St George’s College, Weybridge. In front of distinguished judges Russell Watson, David Grant and Suzi Digby, Ms Castledine conducted St George’s College Chamber Choir as they performed their chosen inspirational song, ‘Didn’t My Lord Deliver Daniel?’

Singer and vocal coach David Grant praised the Choir for ‘a remarkable arrangement and remarkable execution.’

Afterwards Ms Castledine beamed as she told her choir that they deserved to celebrate ‘really hard!’

St George’s College Chamber Choir also won the senior section of the prestigious Barnardo’s National Choir Competition earlier this year.

The episode of Songs of Praise is available to watch on BBC iPlayer until Sunday, 6 May
