On the road again!!!

So, last Wednesday, 6 Nov 2013, 11 of us travelled by minibus to Calne in Wiltshire again.

Ready and waiting to hit the M4!

This time, we had been invited to go to Holy Trinity C of E Academy (Emma's old Primary school!) and sing in their assembly, take a workshop with their school choir and then perform together what they had learned.

The weather was miserable for our journey but we arrived in plenty of time and were made really welcome by the Head, Steve Heal. We had a quick warm up in the staff room before going into the school assembly. Emma led the choir in that GGCC classic 'Great Is He' and then got the children all singing the two parts of 'Freedom'. They picked it up brilliantly.

Then Emma led a workshop with the school choir.

She taught some fun warm ups and using the song 'Soon and very soon' and some group activities demonstrated some principles of choir singing e.g. blending, diction and the importance of smiling!!! The children in the school choir were such good listeners and learners, we had a lot of fun together. We finished our time there by performing with them to the rest of the school.

It was a great morning, a lot of fun!

 And the GGCC crew who came along were brilliant…thanks for your help!!!
