The Choir has now emerged as an integral centre for the promotion of classical and sacred music and a training ground for the spread of Latin chants and hymns. The choir leads the students at all important celebrations of Divine Worship. The Coir performs annually at a festival of Lenten music together with choirs from other schools as well and again at Christmastide at the Annual Christmas Carol Service. Yje choir participated in an All Island open musical competition conducted by the local Branch of the British Federation of Performing Arts and emerged first in respect of all categories.
In keeping with the policy of sharing a contingent of 45 choristers conducted a workshop for parish and school choirs of the Galle diocese. Our Choir was invited to perform at the Christmas Concert organized by the Presidential Secretariat. The Annual Christmas Carols which is the show piece of the Choir was performed in the College Auditorium at which the Bishop of Galle the Most Rev. Dr. Raymond Wickremasinghe presided. I must make special mention of Mr. Francis De Almeida, the Choir Director who has consistently put his charges through rigorous training. His dedicated services are greatly appreciated.
