Here at Dwight, we are proud of our very lively and versatile arts department, with various concerts, shows and exhibitions throughout the year. With momentum gathered in local performances and also at the Global Dwight Schools’ Carnegie Hall concerts in New York City, our choir has become something of a trademark ensemble of Dwight London. Due to our close links with the world-renowned London Community Gospel Choir, their director, Becky Thomas, is also in charge our own Upper School Choir.
