Year 6 Full Circle Performance at the Royal Albert Hall!

By | Concert, Performance

In November a group of Y6’s were involved in an 8 week project with Newham Music and Lister Community school which saw hundreds of children from different schools around Newham perform together at the Royal Albert Hall.

It was an amazing occasion here are the thoughts of one of our Y6’s Aanya on the performance at the Royal Albert Hall:

 

For the first time ever, some lucky Year 6 children went to the Music For Youth proms (MFY) at the Royal Albert Hall! They performed in front of hundreds of people on the 12th of November. All of these children had to learn four songs written by Newham pupils from Lister Secondary: We stick like bricks, Unbreakable lines, Now I can do anything and the finale song The future is Us. Thinking back on this wonderful experience, these songs were very inspirational.

It wasn’t scary performing in front of a large audience  because I realised that many other people were also beside me. It encouraged me to keep on singing and not to be afraid. I loved the songs as three of them were very motivation, however one of them was sad.

 

I would love to do this again. I want to have the same feeling again like I had when I was on stage. It was a great experience for all Year 6 children.

Creative Schools Symposium 2020 Choir Performance

By | Concert, Performance

 

The Creative Schools Symposium takes place every two years at Stratford Circus bringing arts organisatioins together with schools to see how they can work together to run creative projects for children in schools. Gallions were invited to give a performance during the break and the Y4s and a handful of Y5s from choir came down to perform.

The choir performed 3 songs including a wonderful rendition of Hallelujah with Choir lead Emma adding some cello to the children’s voices to heighten the experience for those watching.

Given the unusual performance setting and number of adults they were performing to the children did an exceptional job wowing the crowd. They gave a lovely performance that everyone really enjoyed. Great performance experience for the children.

Thank you Creative Schools Symposium and Stratford Circus for having Gallions perform.

Beckton Orchard Opening June 2019

By | Performance

In April 2019, Trees for Cities and the London Borough of Newham planted a 20-fruit tree orchard in New Beckton Park, with 226 local adults and children. There was a celebratory event for the public and local schools on Friday 28th June, to mark the official opening of the orchard.

Gallions were invited to perform at the opening and we brought our Y1 & Y2 afterschool singing club. Led by Miss Kamara the children performed a selection of songs to locals, parents and Children from North Beckton Primary School. The children were brilliant and it was a great opportunity to go out and perform in the community.

 

Junior Choir Perform at Gallions Reach

By | Concert

Once again the Gallions children were invited to sing at the Christmas lights switch on at Gallions Reach Retail park. Armed with songbooks gloves and Santa hats our junior choir took to the stage and delivered festive classics like Rudolph the red nose reindeer, jingle bells and Santa Claus is coming to town.

At the end of the performance the children were joined on stage by Santa who launched the final countdown to the Christmas lights switching on and a flurry of snow and more Christmas tunes for the children (and parents) to sing along too. It was a wonderful afternoon with the children delivering a brilliant performance.

The junior choir will be singing again at the Newham Community Lights switch on on Friday 7th December at 4:30 pm.
