Year 5s join School Proms 2014

 

The whole of Year 5 joined the annual prestigious music in education event, the School Proms 2014. Our pupils performed with other schools in four London Boroughs, before a huge paying audience at the Royal Albert Hall.

Please find  an interview clip from Classic FM  HERE, with the choir's conductor and the composer. The clip includes some of our pupils singing a part of the repertoire.

 "There's not much room for the audience," says conductor Timothy Redmond of his group tonight, the South Riverside Music Partnership Massed Ensemble. The performers tonight are drawn form schools across  four south London boroughs.

Among them are an orchestra, a band called Animate, the choir ("It goes on forever," says Redmond), and a beatboxer. 

Kerry Andrew, the award-winning composer who wrote tonight's piece, The London Breed, took her inspiration from Benjamin Zephaniah's poem of the same name. "I took that poem into Animate and some schools and got them to write new words in response to the poem," she says.  

With its strong London flavour, the poem has provided the perfect inspiration, and showcases the enormous diversity of talent amongst young people from south London.
