Yet again we have been lucky enough to have over 30 talented children join our choir. This is going to be a very busy term for us as we are in demand this year.
On 31st August, some of our choir sang in St Martin's Church in the town centre to celebrate the 70th birthday of Basildon. The children were amazing (even bringing a tear to Mrs Dennis's eye!)
Events to look out for this time: we will be singing Christmas songs in Basildon town centre on 16th November (we will let you know the time as soon as we know); again this year we will be singing to raise money for St Luke's hospice - this takes place outside Debenhams and is on Friday 13th December at 11:00am; we are also visiting a local care home to sing Christmas songs for them and we have been asked to sing at the Rotary Club's Christmas concert (details still to be confirmed). So you can see, leading up to Christmas is a very busy time for us.
In addition to this, the choir will start rehearsing the songs to sing at the 2020 Young Voices concert, which will take place on 6th February at The O2 Arena. Mrs Barrick and Ms Grange have already attended a workshop to learn the songs and this year the children will again be accompanying Tony Hadley as well as Ruti Olajugbagbe. This is an incredible event that the children will be talking about for years.
