A Special Spring Concert

The Craig E. Smith Choir concert on May 25 will feature a premiere of an anthem version of the school hymn, composed by Director of Choral Music Christopher Hampson.

Hampson, who is moving to the West Coast, was asked by a student to “write something epic,”—something that could be kept within the Groton repertoire after he departs. “I’d been on a composing spree since Christmas, and this was the final piece of said spree and dedicated to the choir 2013-14!” Hampson says. He also will premiere an original work, “God Be in My Head,” which he has dedicated to this year’s choir prefects.

The concert is May 25 at 5 p.m. at St. John’s Chapel.
