On Thursday 5 Dec, twenty-four of our most dedicated singers got in the minibuses and went to South Lodge Care Home in Stoneygate, Leicester. We were welcomed very warmly by a large audience that more than filled the room in which we were performing. Our team sang some pieces that we had been learning for the Carol Service and some that we had learned specially for this concert. Amongst the songs was Walking in the Air, Miri It Is and In the Bleak Midwinter. We also had a solo from Charlotte W. and ensemble performances from a Year 5 group (Bea, Megan, Annabelle and Elizabeth) and a Year 6 group (Freya (vocals and saxophone), Antonia, Caitlin and Gracie).
All performers had attended extra rehearsals and performed very well in an unfamiliar setting. We had some lovely reactions from the residents at the South Lodge and hope we brought them some Christmas cheer!
Well done to everyone involved.
