King's Annual Choral Day
On 19th September 2017, keen singers in Y6 at The Lantern teamed up with Y6 singers from Downham Feoffees Primary Academy to attend King's Ely's annual Choral Day.
This year, King's was celebrating its tenth anniversary of the event and we were amongst three hundred children from a dozen schools. The day was led by Dominic Peckham, Artistic Director of the Royal Opera House's RM19 Youth Singing Group and Assistant Musical Director of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain. After rehearsing in the Hayward Theatre, the children performed to families and friends at the Cathedral.
The children experienced singing a range of styles in parts, such as plainsong, a beautifully atmospheric Swedish song and George Michael's 'Freedom'. The performance featured soloists from various schools, including our very own Zofia in 'Human' by Rag 'n' Bone Man!
