    Choral Evensong Farewell to the Headmaster

    Mr Stephen Higgs will be retiring at the end of this year, bringing to a close 21 years as Headmaster at Ballarat Grammar.

    By way of farewell Mr Higgs has requested a service of Choral Evensong followed by a family picnic. This will be a wonderful opportunity for the Grammar community to celebrate his contribution to the School and to offer him our best wishes for the future.

    Significantly, the Headmaster has chosen a Choral Evensong for this occasion, recognising the value of the Choral Program established under his instruction when he started at the School.

    The Chapel of St Mark Chamber Choir is honoured to be involved in this important celebration and worship. We also feel that there is an opportunity to assemble a massed choir, including current and past students, teachers, parents and friends of the School for this event.

    Fr Peter Treloar has composed a new setting of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimitis for the occasion. Let All the World in Every Corner Sing by R Vaughn Williams, The Lord Bless You and Keep You by John Rutter, and a selection of hymns, including the School Anthem, will also be performed.

    This will be an amazing opportunity to be involved in the farewell for our esteemed Headmaster. We would love to include as many of our past students, staff and families in this event, as possible.

    Please contact the Music Office on +61 3 5338 0879 or email Sharon.kugel@bgs.vic.edu.au for more details or to register your interest by Friday 31 July.

    The service will be followed by a family picnic in Kit’s Garden and the Centennial Building Precinct.

    Further details about the picnic will follow soon. Seating in the WCPA will not be required for choir members. All other audience members will need ticketed seats.

    More details will follow soon
