Sacred Heart has a well established KS2 choir which meets to practice several times during the year. We aim to build confidence, raise the profile of our school and, most importantly, enjoy singing together. Unsurprisingly, we are a vocal group and the choir members take a lead in selecting and developing many of the songs we perform. This means we have built up a varied repertoire and are always looking for ways to improve it further.
Our busiest period is in the run-up to Christmas. That’s when we meet to prepare for public performances at Sacred Heart Parish Church. In addition to this, we are regularly invited to perform by other charitable organisations. These are always performing experience for the choir.
There are other performances through the year including the Wharfedale Festival of Performing Arts and our own school concert. All of these are wonderful opportunities to perform for an audience and to enjoy the performances of others.
We’re getting better all the time as well. Much of what we do is increasingly complex and makes the best use of the wide range of singing voices we have in our choir. As a result, being a member of our choir takes real dedication. However, if a child in our school wants to be a part of our choir and is willing to make the commitment, we are always happy to take them in, regardless of their singing experience.
We are supported by Mr. Snelson and Mrs. Miller who run the choir. Often, we are even joined by Mrs. Lubomski who has a great deal of experience in leading choirs. Without a doubt though, the true stars are the many dedicated children who give up their time to come and sing.
