Pupils from Forest enjoyed working alongside the choir from Edenhurst Preparatory School for a joint Choral Day. The day was organised by Forest Music teacher, Ms Susan Wellings and led by renowned conductor of the Hallé Children's Choir, Mrs. Shirley Court. The pupils rehearsed intensively throughout the day, doing vocal exercises, listening and responsiveness drills and worked on expanding their sound and 'word-painting' to maximise the meaning of the song texts.
Mrs. Court was delighted with the progress the children made and, after a concentrated three hours of rehearsals, the highlight of the day was performing for the Forest Prep pupils and teachers. Each school sang two of their own songs and then combined for the final two songs of the programme.
Well done to everyone involved - what a great opportunity to be involved in joint activities with one of our fellow Bellevue schools!
