The choir is highly enthusiastic and directors have high expectations of singers as they start to develop good technique. Whilst the choir is still developing it already has a very strong team supporting it and we have ambitious plans that include concerts with internationally renowned groups and workshops with outstanding international choral leaders.
The choir is led by Gavin Usher-Schofield – an outstanding conductor and musician. He is ably supported by Tom Masters and Emma McKenna. The children sing in 2 parts but will also sing in 3 parts and use special Kodaly warm-ups to develop technique.The choir members wear green t-shirts for rehearsals and white tops and royal blue skirts (girls) and white shirts and black trousers (boys) for concerts.
