Choir sang beautifully recently at our annual carol service for the residents of Lucy Brown House. The children were also very lucky to receive a gift of Christmas crackers and books! Many thanks to all the families who also attended.

The school choir was very fortunate to have another opportunity to collaborate with Citi Choir, recent office choir of the year. This term, we joined forces to sing at the Citi carol service on Monday 12th December. We were welcomed into the Citi offices in Canary Wharf and given a tour of the trading floor. We also got to see a 14-storey high art installation by Bridget Riley, which hangs in the centre of the building!
Here are a few photos of our trip and two short videos of the wonderful singing. Congratulations to all members of choir for performing so well this Christmas!

Choir put on a cheerful performance of songs chosen in partnership with the residents of Lucy Brown House, including ‘Molly Malone’ in honour of St Patrick’s Day, some favourite Girl Guide songs and more.
It was a particularly special performance as our audience joined in and sang with us!
Well done to choir for their hard work and dedication this term.

Choir were invited to take part in the City of London Festival, singing with the Citi Choir, who are part of the Music in Offices programme. Directed by Emma Taylor, one of the coaches from the musical Matilda, the school choir will be performing three songs from the show on a pop-up stage in Paternoster Square, outside St. Paul’s Cathedral, accompanied by a live band!
Here are the highlights of our preview performance in the school hall:

Listen here to our performance of Just Take My Hand, written by members of Miss Hayfield’s family, Martin and Rosie. We were the first singers ever to perform the song which has been 20 years in the making! Martin and Rosie were very impressed with our wonderfully energetic singing.

Cathedral School enjoyed a very musical Sing Up day this year. Every class enjoyed activities such as singing the register, singing numeracy and literacy songs, playing singing games, learning songs in different languages and adding new words and percussion to favourite songs. There was even singing in the playground as Year 3 children shared action songs they had been learning with KS1 and KS2 during playtime. The whole day was finished off with a fantastic Singing Celebration in the hall, where every class performed a song that they had been learning. It was a delight to hear such a variety of songs sung so beautifully and enthusiastically. You can hear some of the songs that were performed on the class blogs.
As an extra treat, the choir performed a concert after school. They sang songs from musicals including Oliver and the Sound of Music. Enjoy their performance below!

A Golden Piano has been placed outside Southwark Cathedral for the public to use. So today Year 2 took advantage of it to sing some fun hymns to all the passers-by. They drew quite a crowd and enjoyed lots of loud applause. Here are some photos, but make sure you check the Year 2 blog to see some video of their beautiful and enthusiastic singing.
