A CHOIR from an Ascot school gave a performance fit for royalty as they serenaded for HRH Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.

Twenty girls from St George's School Chapel Choir took to the stage at Ascot Race Day on Wednesday, May 2 for The Prince Philip Trust, a fund which supports good causes across the Royal Borough.

This is the third time the Chapel Choir has been asked to perform at the bi-annual event, and gives the girls the chance to exhibit their best music. The Choir sang grace before lunch, going on to perform pieces by Mendelssohn, Henry Ley, Charles Wood, Richard Rodgers along with The Collect of St George and a motet in celebration of the Queen's recent birthday 'O Lord grant the Queen a long life.

Ian Hillier, Director of Music at St George’s School, said: “The girls were delighted to be singing at Ascot Racecourse again and thoroughly enjoyed performing for Prince Edward. The Prince Philip Trust fund does amazingly good work and it is wonderful to be able to support them.”
