A celebration of innovative and creative music-making!
We were proud to be selected as one of 3 Norfolk schools to go to the Royal Albert Hall this week.
All The Hall’s A Stage, organised by the charity Music for Youth, brought young musicians from across the country back together for an inclusive Prom. 2,000 young people took part in performances to support and encourage musicians and music educators as they restart, rebuild and reboot live music making post-lockdown.
Y4s sang and played their ukuleles, as well as participating in the rather strange compositions that required us to ring bells, scrunch plastic bottles or make long notes.
It was an amazing experience for everyone, from driving across central London (with a running commentary from Guide Hayes), playing in the leaves in Hyde Park and listening to orchestras, bands and choirs from all over the country.
Thank you to the parents who came and supported us and the staff and helpers who managed the children on the day. The children did us all proud.
“My favourite bit was when we sang ‘My song, is a good, good song’.” (Note – we were the only ones singing this near us, as every other group sang their own song!)
“The best bit was listening to a disabled choir performing ‘Bad Habits'”.
“It was so inspiring. It reached out to me!”
“The best bit was playing my ukulele.”
“I liked singing All the Hall’s a Stage.”
