If you watched this afternoon’s performance when Years 2 through to Year 6 sang along with Mr Young, a semi-professional opera singer who carried out two singing workshops with us over the term, we think you probably would have said “wow!” The quality of the singing was sensational and you couldn’t help but be moved by the performance. Mr Young started the performance by singing a solo accompanied by Miss Staten on the piano. This was then followed by the children accompanying Mr Young singing ‘Any Dream Will Do’ from Joesph and his Amazing Techicoloured Dreamcoat. Finally, the children sang ‘We are the Young’ – a song which will definitely become a firm favourite.
We thank Mr Young for giving up his time to run the workshops and we wish him well for the course he is undertaking at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama in September. We hope that he will come and visit us again.
Thank you also to Mrs Tugwell and Miss Staten who have worked hard with the children making sure they were performance ready.
