We’ve got two splendid choirs up and running this year and we’re looking forward to some exciting concerts and events. All documents and resources are available through the link below. And don’t forget to check out our videos too. Our media statement is right at the bottom. Please check back regularly for updates.
The children were magnificent at the recent Spring Concert and gave an absolutely thrilling performance, full of energy and charisma! The video is below – Well done! The next event for our 3&4s will be the Grandparents Tea Party in November, followed in January 2024 by Young Voices.
After our success at St John’s we’re now looking forward to performing three songs alongside other Redditch schools at ‘Gotta Sing’ at the Palace Theatre on Wednesday 14th June. The cost is £1.80 per child – see ParentPay. We’re including our y4 children as they’ll be joining the older choir soon anyway. See the folder above for rehearsal materials and please get these learned by heart!
Audience tickets for parents and families are now available HERE. Make sure you book for the Wednesday and not the Tuesday! The children performing in the choir will obviously not need a ticket. The audience tickets do not allow for babes-in-arms so please make other arrangements for infants. We’ll need a couple of parent helpers to accompany us so please let me know if you’re DBS and available. Helpers will see the show but not need a ticket.
Here are some past highlights:
Upon joining choir for the first time, we ask for a specific media consent. We take online safety very seriously; no child will be named in our videos and links will be posted on the choir page. As a school we can’t guarantee how this material will be used once it is in the public domain. If you have any questions or concerns about this issue please do ask.
We intend to have lots of fun with choir but do regard it as a serious commitment so please do reinforce this with your children. Our choir members are often seen performing in public places and are always excellent ambassadors for the school. Remember, the first port of call for information is always the choir page on the school website.
From May 2022, when ticking the permission box on ParentPay or authorising ‘external video’ in the Scholarpack permissions, you are agreeing to the following statement: My child would like to join the school choir and I am happy for video footage and photographs to be taken at concerts and events. I am also happy for photos and video featuring my child to appear online, such as on YouTube, and also in local newspapers. I will inform school if this situation changes.
If your child wants to join choir, but you are unable to give this media consent for whatever reason, please do come and talk to me and we may be able to make a separate provision.
