Lent Term 2024
We have had a fantastic term and were delighted to welcome several new members in January! 

A couple of highlights:

On Wednesday 20th March, we had our end-of-term informal performance to friends and family. Young Voices sang 'Sing a Rainbow' particularly beautifully, and they entertained the audience with their rendition of 'Algy Met a Bear'. The Junior Choir sang in three parts for the first time in one of their favourite pieces, 'Like A Beat of a Different Drum' by Sarah Quartel - thank you to Laurence for playing the drums! The two choirs also sang 'Do-Re-Mi' from the Sound of Music and 'Skye Boat Song' - it was a great sound and an uplifting afternoon! Thank you to Lands' End for sponsoring our new polo shirts - we wore them at this concert for the first time and looked really smart. 

'On Saturday 23rd March, we had a great day rehearsing and performing the 'Chichester Psalms' by Bernstein with Rutland Choral Society. I couldn't believe how loud the organ was! I also enjoyed singing with the harp and timpani. It was fun to sing in Hebrew but also quite difficult! Between the rehearsal and the performance, we played 'stuck in the mud' in the park and games in the church hall, and we had pasta for dinner. In the concert, we performed a solo piece called 'The Bird's Lament' by Richard Rodney Bennett - it's my favourite piece to sing, and I think we sang our best!'
