On Thursday 17th March, Senior Choir invited family members to come and watch an informal concert/open rehearsal. It was a lovely occasion and Senior Choir really rose to the occasion. We began with a warm-up and went into a set of four pieces that were performance-ready: I am the Wind, Swing Low, Half the World Away and The Storm is Passing Over. We then handed over to Pippa N, Gracie F, Antonia V and Freya A for their performance of Just the Way You Are. This was something that they had worked on independently and was inspired by the film Pitch Perfect.
We then went into the open rehearsal section of the event and gave sneak-previews of some of the pieces that we are intending to perform in the Summer Sequence Concert on Thursday 16th June. Senior Choir demonstrated a strong tone in The Writings on the Wall and then a lightness and sweetness of tone in Rutter’s I will sing with the spirit.We finished the open rehearsal with Feel Good. This is an uplifting song that needs real energy. We need to work on the clapping and the strength of the lower harmony parts, but it is going to be great by the time we get to the concert.
Thank you to all the parents for coming along and making it such a lovely occasion.
