As part of our links this year with Chant Productions and following on from the singing event at the rugby final in Anfield during the Autumn Term, on Friday 10th February some of our Year 6 children enjoyed the amazing opportunity to sing as part of a choir at Blackburn Cathedral alongside the opera singer Sean Ruane. Many other schools from our area took part and had been learning and practicing the songs enthusiastically since January. The Hearts and Voices concert is an annual event that is organised to help raise money for the Rossendale Hospice and our school was invited this year to take part. As always the children who were able to attend did not let Northern down and behaved and performed to an excellent standard, despite having to wait around and take part in rehearsals after an already busy day at school. Many thanks to the parents and carers that were able to attend and support the children on the night, including particularly those who were kind enough to transport the children to and from the event, it was greatly appreciated. The event itself was fantastic and the children got to experience performing in a magnificent venue alongside the amazing scout band. The few audience members that i got to speak to all said what a fantastic evening it was and how well the children did. This was clear to see as while the children were performing I could see every member of the audience thoroughly enjoying their singing. Well done to Enfys, Emily, Mason, Kyle F, Zack, Chelsea, Esther, Briony, Lucy, Olivia, Connor, Leah, Rhys and Hannah!
