Music and Performance
The Choir is open to all children in Key Stage 2.
We perform at school events and in local competitions. We have participated in the Young Voices concerts in Birmingham and competed in the Hereford Music Festival.
The children really enjoy developing their vocal and performance skills.
Hereford Performing Arts Festival
In March 2016 our Key Stage 2 choir took part in the Herefordshire Performing Arts Festival at the Courtyard Theatre, Hereford.
The choir were commended by the Judge at the Herefordshire Performing Arts Festival 2016 who awarded them her first ‘90’ points of the competition.
They were the proud recipients of the Strathallen Cup after finishing first in the School Choir’s Key Stage 2 Category.
Our School Choir - Herefordshire Junior Choir of The Year 2016.
Hellens Music Project
We have been sent this wonderful video of Elisabeth Schneider from the Hellens Music Project that some of our children have been involved in.
We are pleased to offer weekly lessons on flute, guitar, and violin with accredited Local Authority teachers. We are always willing to extend our provision to include, for example, recorder, clarinet, saxophone and ukulele.
The children are encouraged to perform in front of their peers and parents at events throughout the year.
