Hounslow Music Festival

 

Yesterday, the choir took part in the annual Hounslow Music Festival at Hammersmith Town Hall.  They had been practising hard throughout the term to join a massed choir of local primary schools.  The audience enjoyed a wide range of music including a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, songs from Moana and Brave, a jazz number and Zulu music - a real variety!  Interspersed with the primary schools' singing were performances by Hounslow Soul, a group of secondary school pupils who entertained us with music played on trumpets, trombones, saxophones, drums and electric guitars with wonderful solo singing. Something for our children to aspire to in the future.

 

I would like to echo these comments from one of our parents in the audience and say a special thank you not only to Oonagh Barry and her team at the Hounslow Music Service for organising the event but also to Ms Todd for all her hard work in preparing the choir and for Mrs Bridges and Mrs Skinner for accompanying them to the Town Hall.  Thank you too to all those parents and family members who came to support the choir.

 

"Just wanted to say a huge thanks for organising such a lovely choir concert tonight. It was a delight to see our children performing - what beautiful singing! - and listen to such talented and confident young musicians.

Really appreciate the time, enthusiasm and commitment that the staff at Belmont put in to make these things happen (especially in 90F heat!)"

 

On Tuesday 20th June, the whole choir went to the Hounslow singing festival. The choir travelled by bus to Hammersmith Town Hall. Once we arrived, the rehearsal was in full swing. The conductor, Victoria, was very special because she played for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! She led us for all the songs, teaching us the right movements, except for one when a different lady led us. After rehearsal it was dinner time. We were taken to a room to unpack our dinner to take it with us.

    At the park we had our picnic dinner and played supertag with Cavendish primary school. It was very fun. Soon after we had to go back to the Town hall. It was time for the show.

    When we returned, everyone had to change into yellow polo shirts . Taking our water bottles with us, all of the choir made way to the stage. The parents were already there and everyone was introduced to the schools and the show began.

    Our first song was introduced by soloists Sienna and Portia from year 3. After that song, the conductor did the rest of our songs. It was really fun. In between songs, a different choir sang. There was one big hit 'Human'. It was by a man called Rag and Bone man. Soon after the show finished and all of the choir went to change our shirts. Then we were taken downstairs to all of our parents, tired but happy from a lovely day of singing. 

    ​Thanks to Miss Todd for all of your preparation and hard work.
