The choir was started in 2015 with a view to give children the opportunity to learn a variety of songs and perform in many settings. William Ford’s Choir is building a reputation in excellent concerts, including a Colour Concert during the Summer term.
This year, the children will be learning songs which will be used in the young voices concert on the 31st January. It would be useful if you could provide your child with time to practise these songs using the instructions they have been given on the Young Voices site.
For Christmas, members of the choir visited Queen's Hospital and others visited a local care home. While singing in the Hospital atrium, two buckets were placed in front of the children to raise money for the King George & Queen's Hospitals Charity. In only 30 minutes, the children had raised £178.47 to go towards a present for every child in hospital on Christmas Day.
“It was a good day, singing lots of songs that I enjoyed and people were clapping us.” (Olivia, Year 4: commenting on the hospital performance)
“I felt really joyful because I got to sing in front of lots of people and make them happy.” (Morgan, Year 5: commenting on the care home performance)
On Thursday 31st January, 30 members of the school choir joined the Young Voices Choir of 7776 children in the O2. They sang songs from other cultures and various periods of time. The children were joined by a variety of special guests including Tony Hadley, Sharlene Hector and Urban Strides. Mr Burgin is very proud of their singing and overall behaviour, especially in such a long day, starting at 12:00 and returning home for 22:30!
“I felt excited and scared at first because there were lots of people, but it became an incredible night.” (Doyinsola, Year 6)
