On Monday 11 April, 29 of our talented singers took part in The Canterbury Big Sing at the Marlowe Theatre, joining children from 8 other local primary schools and 3 adult choirs.
Having had just 4 rehearsals with the musical director, Danny Tomkinson, the children sang a varied repertoire from Stevie Wonder’s “Sir Duke” to a traditional Jewish song, “Al Shlosha”, finishing with a very fun rendition of “Revolting Children”!
