New school choir performs at O2Posted: 18th February 2019
A newly formed school choir had its first big gig – in front of thousands at the O2 arena.
Musical pupils at Freshwaters Primary Academy recently formed the school choir and have already been snapped up for a national performance.
Children from around the country joined together to put on a concert at the London venue as part of the Young Voices campaign to inspire children to discover a love for music.
Amy Dias, head of school, said: “This has been a whole new experience for our children as the choir was only set up this school year. For some, going to London and the O2 for the day was something completely different for them.
“This is not academic based and is another way of giving opportunities and engaging with things our children are good at. The arts are a good way of bringing new skills and allowing children to flourish in different ways.
“It has been really nice to see pupils practising and coming together as a choir and working really hard. This is a fantastic opportunity for them.”
The performance took place after the Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils spent the day preparing with schoolchildren from around the country.
