King’s Ely Junior’s Chamber Choir wowed audiences during their tour to Cologne.
The 30-strong choir, made up of boys and girls from Years 5 to 8, toured the western German city, where they performed three services and two concerts in five days.
On the Saturday, the choir sang vespers, mass and a concert at St Aposteln Church in Central Cologne.
On the Sunday, they travelled to Altenberg Cathedral, 25km north-east of Cologne, to sing morning mass.
At 4pm that day they gave a concert in St Pantaleon Church before singing vespers in Cologne Cathedral, which was televised worldwide on the internet.

“The chamber choir was a credit to the school and performed very professionally. I am so grateful for all their hard work this year.”
