Camden Music Festival at the Royal Albert Hall
Monday 12th March 2018
Since January, the school choir has been learning a number of songs for the Camden Music festival which was held this week at the Royal Albert Hall. The choir travelled to the Royal Albert Hall on Monday afternoon to join up with all the other Camden school choirs for a long rehearsal ahead of the concert. The children worked so hard and listened to all the instructions from the conductors so that they were able to provide a polished performance.
The choir had to learn many songs thoroughly so that they could perform from memory and know exactly when to start their particular part. One of the pieces, called ‘Wondrous Machine’, was especially composed for the festival. It involved the choirs and the secondary school orchestras. For this piece, the children even had to learn how to use sign language.
During the festival, there were also performances from the secondary school choirs and orchestras which were of an amazing standard!
During the concert, the children performed brilliantly and were great ambassadors for our school. We were very proud of them all. If you were able to attend the festival, we do hope you enjoyed seeing your child perform at the Royal Albert Hall.

“It was a once in a life time opportunity. Not many people have the chance to sing in the Royal Albert Hall.” (Aditi)
