After such a long time away, it has been wonderful to hear the sounds of sweet music and harmonised singing floating through our classrooms and hallways, here at King’s St Alban’s.
This week, rehearsals have been back in full swing! These sessions have been important to establish and introduce the new musical ensemble timetable before children get reacquainted with their instruments next week.
Today is Choir Day and Year 3, 6KB and 6DB have been belting out some of their favourite songs.
Today’s activities follow from our whole school getting to take part in their first hymn practice since returning to school. The Assistant Director of Music at Worcester Cathedral, Nicholas Freestone, joined us through Teams to guide our pupils.
While we would usually take the children to the Chapel for this practise, it was brilliant to see everyone singing safely within their classroom ‘bubbles‘ and seeing so many of our students in their musical element once more!
There are many musical opportunities for our children at King’s St Alban’s. Groups include Orchestra, Junior and Senior String Groups, Junior and Senior Wind Bands, Flute Choir, Recorder Groups, and Chamber Choir. All children in Years 3 to 6 sing in one of our two school choirs and many children opt to take individual music lessons on an instrument of their choosing.
