New boys Choir at Monkton Prep
Thursday, 12 January 2017
Today was the first rehearsal for the new years 5 and 6 boys only choir! The idea was that of Director of Music Mrs Harris who said "The boys are really good singers who have more confidence when singing on their own."
The first rehearsal took place at 4pm today and had a really enthusiastic 27 boys turn up, "its about giving them an opportunity to join a choir at a time that doesn't interfere with their breaks, when they need the time to run around."
Mrs Harris has some challenging pieces for the boys to start out with, including a Kyrie by J Estes and a Gospel piece, Wade in the Water but she is sure the boys are up to the challenge and hopes to enter them into the Mid Somerset Festival - watch this space.
