Three boys from Year 8 took part in an eight week ‘Visual to Vocal’ project at Dulwich Picture Gallery, which culminated in a performance on 25 June 2017. Over the previous two months, the boys have worked with patients with dementia, their carers and members of English Touring Opera to compose music and write lyrics for a song cycle which reflected and interpreted some of the Old Masters in the collections at Dulwich Picture Gallery. The boys had to use their superb singing and acting skills to fulfil this project. The boys were brilliant ambassadors for Dulwich College and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
In 2019 Dulwich College was awarded Independent School of the Year for the Performing Arts, acknowledging the work and talent of the Drama and Music departments. The award was conferred by Independent School Parent magazine.
