Princethorpe’s Choral Fun Day Provides Inspiration For All
Aspiring young singers from local primary schools enjoyed a super day of song when they joined Princethorpe's Director of Music, Gil Cowlishaw, Music Teacher, Alison Wakeley, and members of the Princethorpe College Choir for a fabulous Choral Fun Day.
The Year 5 and 6 pupils tackled a variety of choral pieces from popular favourites including Pharrell Williams’ Happy and Miley Cyrus’ The Climb, to old favourites such as Swing Low, Sweet Chariot.
As well as rehearsing furiously, the visiting children took part in a musical team scavenger hunt and enjoyed lunch in the Refectory.
The day culminated in an impressive gala performance of their newly learnt pieces in front of an enthusiastic capacity audience of family and friends in the College's Clarkson theatre, followed by refreshments for all.
Commenting on the day, Gil Cowlishaw said, "We were really impressed by the children. They achieved such a lot in just a few hours, learning so many songs and then taking to the stage to perform in front of an audience is no mean feat, a huge well done to them all!"
And a special thank you to all of the fantastic Princethorpe pupils who came along to support the Choral Fun Day.
