Choir sing at the Royal Albert Hall
On Sunday 11th March, 19 members of the school choir were up bright and early and at school (7.20am to be exact), ready to get on a bus to London. After a fairly quick journey, we arrived at the Royal Albert Hall eagerly awaiting rehearsals for the Hertfordshire School’s Gala: If I had wings. The event was a celebration of singing and instrumental music with live art and dance. Mrs Thomas and Mrs Howard were left slightly star struck when we saw James Mayhew and Michael Rosen who were both taking part in the performance – Michael in fact wrote the words for the songs and narration. Unfortunately we didn’t get the opportunity to speak to them – or grab them for a Dream Catcher assembly!
After two hours of rehearsals, the time came for the performance. The choir were AMAZING! Miss Whitfield, Mrs Thomas and Mrs Howard are so proud of the children’s commitment to learning all of the songs over the last few months and of the effort that they put into their performance. A huge thank you to all of the children - and to their parents for coming to support them and giving up their Mothering Sunday.
