Welcome to our school music blog!
The Manuden School Choir rehearse every Thursday after school and have recently performed at the O2 Arena in London as part of the Young Voices concert series. This was a fantastic opportunity for the Key Stage 2 children in the choir to perform with other singers as part of the annual Young Voices event, where the audience was be treated to the mass choir singing some well-known tunes, expertly accompanied by some interesting dance moves. It really was a great evening for everyone. We are currently rehearsing for our performance at the Easter Service and also planning our repertoire for the summer term.
Our younger musicians at Manuden have also been very busy. They have been working hard on their Samba band performance for their Samba Parade. Barn Owl Class took part in a Samba workshop and have already given a sneak preview of their Samba Band at their Class Assembly. The full piece will be performed at their Samba Parade Experience Outcome. Be warned – it will be noisy!
At Manuden we offer a range of instrumental lessons and regularly invite professional musicians in to work with our children. If you are interested in learning an instrument, please contact the school office, who will put you in contact with one of our visiting music teachers.
