On Thursday, 4th July, St Cecilia’s Singers travelled to Birmingham to take part in the National Festival of Music for Youth. After very heavy traffic and rehearsing on the coach, we made it to Symphony Hall just in time.
Six other choirs from around the country were also taking part and it was really useful to watch the other performances to learn from each other. Each choir had a very different style, from classical to contemporary. We sang three pieces: The Parting Glass, Sih’r Khalaq and Da Pacem. Overall, I think we really listened to each other and worked together as a team and the experience left everyone feeling inspired but also exhausted!
Thanks to Mrs Hope for accompanying us on the piano and to the rest of the Music staff for making the trip possible.
