Felsted School pupil, Ewan Cacace, age 13 from Great Dunmow, has been made a Head Chorister at Chelmsford Cathedral.
Ewan, who sings at several services at the cathedral each week, will lead the cantoris side of the choir. He has been blessed with the opportunity to perform to many well-known visitors, including the Archbishop of Canterbury, Princess Anne, HM The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh!
Ewan has also gained a place at the Junior Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, with whom Felsted holds a unique partnership. He will start next term with his main study of the French horn and second study piano.
Ewan commented; “I am so pleased to have this opportunity and as a Felsted Music Scholar, I will continue to contribute fully to the musical life of the school!”
Director of Felsted Music, Mr Pete Bennett comments; “We are delighted that Ewan has been given this fantastic opportunity with the cathedral, he’s an extremely talented young musician and a key member of both Felsted’s Jazz Band and Orchestra.”
