Somerville House Cantrice Choir Dawn Service performance

The School's Premier Choir, Cantrice, were honoured to provide music for the Greenslopes Private Hospital Anzac Day Dawn Service this year.

Before the sun had even risen, our 2017 Music Captain, Isabella M, began the performance with a haunting cello introduction.  Cantrice’s beautiful performance of Mary Elizabeth Frye’s poem 'Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep' was a very moving and poignant moment in the service.  

Dame Quentin Bryce AD CVO, Former Govenor-General of Australia, gave the Anzac Dedication and complimented Cantrice on their exquisite contribution to the service.

Thank you to accompanying staff Christian Ganté and Greg Loxton and to Director of Choral Music, Claire Preston.
