St. Mary's Vocal Group is a 30-something strong band of Key Stage Two voices, who meet on a Wednesday lunchtime. We have a busy schedule of appearances, and therefore a strict commitment code of a term at a time. New joiners are welcomed three times a year, in September, January and after Easter. Attendance is mandatory at all rehearsals.
Our fantastic singers not only lead Whole School Praise Worship every week with their wonderful voices, but they also:
On the evening of Friday 11th March 2016, we were privileged to take the choir to the Don Valley Music Festival at Sir Thomas Wharton Community College.
What a fantastic experience!
The turnout was brilliant, thanks to the wonderful support of our parents. The children were beyond nervous to be stood on the huge stage in front of a very full and scary-looking audience, but stepped up to the plate and delivered a highly entertaining and lively set.
The comments received were:
"The choir were well set-up on the stage. Good actions from the start. You have some VERY GOOD sounds; just need to have more confidence in the higher notes - good that the song had some higher notes today, though. Work at those higher notes - you can do it!
Super rhythm here and really effective actions, confident performing - really singing to the audience. Front people very confidently "leading" but I saw those behind doing very well, too! Keep it up!"
All choir members to receive FOUR merits for a sterling job well done!
