Royal Albert Hall

What an amazing start to the week! On Monday 20th March Year 5 travelled to London to take part in the Echoes 7 Concert at the Royal Albert Hall. All of the hard work practising our singing and mastering a musical instrument came to fruition. We took part in a concert designed to show the work of all the talented musical children in the county of Buckinghamshire. Around 50 primary schools took part – which meant 1800 children performed in the concert. The concert was organised by the Bucks Learning Trust Music teachers – two of these have worked with us at Manor Farm every Friday this year.

Year 5 joined in with the singing in the second half of the concert and members of 5B played a brass or woodwind instrument. Together we performed a collection of songs based on the poems of Enid Blyton – these were especially composed for the performance and all followed a nature theme. It was wonderful to see so many different instruments and voices combine together in each song. We all loved the finale – a world premiere of a tune called Lifesong. Performing on the stage of the Albert Hall was an amazing experience – it is a truly impressive building.

We would like to thank everyone who came to support us – parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. We hope you could see us and that we managed to wave at you. We hope you enjoyed the music we performed. A long but incredibly worthwhile day – Year 5, we were proud of you. You behaved beautifully throughout the day – even in the rain in Hyde Park! Well done!
