The junior choir were invited to perform in the Music for Youth’s National Festival
A local primary school received some very exciting news recently, when their choir were invited to perform in the Music for Youth’s National Festival.
Rainbow Forge Primary Academy’s junior choir, have performed in a number of venues and events around Sheffield, including at Sheffield Cathedral as part of Breast Cancer Care’s carol concerts, with The City of Sheffield Teachers’ Choir at their Christmas performances, and in various Christmas concerts around the city.
In January the choir were selected to perform as part of one of Music for Youth’s 50 Regional Festivals, organised locally by Sheffield Music Hub. They received some amazing feedback from their performance, with comments like “great energy and an exciting sound,” “very good tuning for an unaccompanied primary choir” and “this is a wonderful primary school choir with many musical strengths.”
The choir have been invited to perform at the National Festival in Birmingham, just one of 24 choirs selected from the 40,000 young musicians who took part in the regional festivals. They will be singing in Birmingham Symphony Hall on 4 July.
Head Teacher, Jane Loader said: “It is wonderful to see how confident our children have become, thanks to the experiences and training that our music curriculum and choir programme give our pupils. Our choir welcomes everyone, and they have enjoyed preparing for this performance and are excited to sing for a larger audience.”
