20* members of choir to sing at Royal Albert Hall - evening concert: April 30th 2023
*please note there are currently 23 members in choir so do not assume you will be going. In the past I have managed to secure extra places closer to the time but there is no guarantee. Tickets have not yet gone on sale (Dec 2022)
Our Christmas Concert is Thursday 8th December 2022 at 7pm. There will be pieces played by orchestra and songs sung by choir, and even a joint piece. Come ready to join in and feel the festive magic.
Orchestra have a Halloween workshop day planned. We are hosting a workshop with children from both St Peter's Orchestra and Garden Fields Orchestra on October 31st. Children will be allowed to look suitably spooky for the day - so costume or accessories are permitted (but please make sure you can still play your instrument!!) We will be rehearsing throughout the day from 9am and parents will be invited to watch this combined 'spooktacular' performance at 2.30pm in the school Hall.
Year 5 pupils will be learning a series of Christmas songs to sing at the Cathedral for the annual schools Christmas Carol Service. This will be in the morning of Tuesday 29th November. Parents and carers will be invited to attend the service.
A Christmas Concert has been pencilled in for 7pm on Thursday 8th December 2022. This will involve performances from KS2 Choir and Orchestra.
Our next scheduled performance is on Thursday 9th December 2021. Orchestra, KS1 Choir, KS2 choir, y5 Ukuleles and y4 strings and things (optional) are likely going to be involved.
We are very much hoping that we can share this in person at a concert which parents and carers can be invited to.
This term, the after school choir (yr4,5 & 6) will be invited to sing at the Alban Arena. In previous years we have taken the whole yr6 class but this year we would like to open it up to anyone who is in choir. The date has been confirmed for Tuesday 26th March. Tickets can be bought from the Alban Arena website from FRIDAY 1st FEBRUARY.
Pupils in orchestra, who are grade one or above, are also welcome to take part in the Alban Arena performances. Orchestra children will be expected to attend all 3 nights (25, 26 & 27 March). Pupils who are in orchestra will only need to stay for the first part of the concert. There will be a morning rehearsal at Townsend School on Friday 22nd which parents will need to arrange transport for. More details will be sent out in due course. So watch this space!
