What a great day we have had listening to and performing music. Make Music Day has been happening in many places throughout the country, schools, museums, libraries, walled gardens…. you name it, it has probably happened there.
At All Saints we enjoyed an amazing and often very moving performance by the Big Heart and Soul choir based in Castle Acre. They rehearse once a week and enjoy singing unaccompanied songs from around the world. Today they performed 5 songs and even got the singing a The Herring Song from Lowestoft and a chorus from a Croatian Song.
This afternoon we were so lucky…. Ash, the drummer who plays on a The Voice, junior Voice, plus many gigs with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, Britney Spears and Robbie Williams, to name but a few came in to talk to the children. He ended up accompanying some of our class performances too! We’ve had Music from every class plus individual violinists and pianists plus a trio of violins too. We ended up the day singing as a school When The Saints Go Marching in along with two other songs which can then be sung together, to top it all Ash accompanied us on his drums.
Music is so important to All Saints, why not talk to your children about your musical tastes now and when you were their age. They might laugh, but at least they are learning!
