New Vision Trust MAT Festival of Singing 2019

By | Concert

Earlier in the year the music leads from the 4 schools that make up the New Vision Multi Academy Trust (MAT) that Gallions are part of began planning a concert that would bring the choirs from the 4 schools together for one very grand performance.

The event took place on Thursday 4th May at Nelson Primary School where their large hall, stage and lighting set up made it the ideal venue for the performance.

The children arrived in the afternoon where they took part in a big vocal warm up with music teachers from each school leading different exercises. The children then had a full run through before heading to the hall for the performance.

Each school performed a song on their own before all coming together to perform 4 songs as a powerful ensemble. It was quite a moment with the voices of all four schools coming together to show the power of singing. There was a good crowd of parents to watch including a handful of our parents who had made the trip.

We were the only choir to perform accapella and our choir lead Emma did a great job in showing elements of the Kodaly methods of music education that our provision is built on. It was a great experience for our children to visit another school and perform on a different stage. They did the school very proud.
