Warmest congratulations to the College Chamber Choir who performed excellently before a packed house at the Glorious Venice concert (St Bartholomew's Church, Saturday 24th October). Joining three long established chamber choirs and a quartet of recently graduated professional soloists, the college musicians contributed fully to a programme of complex Venetian choral music by Monteverdi and the Gabriellis (Giovanni & Andrea).
Born Berlin 18 March 1911, died London 22 May 2009 - "A sweet and gentle little man” whom students found “charming, friendly, understanding and delightful” and whose lectures “were masterfully presented”, Professor Walter Ledermann (College master in the early 80's) has died.
On 27 September 1859 the first service was held in the college chapel (smaller then than it is now); and on Friday 2nd October 2009 a service was held to commemorate its 150th anniversary.
I am delighted to send you details of this year's GCSE results from Brighton College - the best results in the school's history, with 50 pupils achieving nothing less than an A grade. The highlights include four sets of twins and a boy who moved to the school in Year 9 "to be himself" and clocked up 11 A*s including Classical Greek.
The College and the Association is saddened to hear of the death of one of our most accomplished alumni. Anthony Hockley was emeritus neurosurgeon at Birmingham’s Children’s and Queen Elizabeth hospitals, and a pioneer of paediatric and craniofacial reconstructive neurosurgery for children with severely deformed faces and heads.
