Hertfordshire Schools' Gala 2014

Royal Albert Hall

 

Our choir had the most amazing opportunity to perform at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the 2014 Hertfordshire Schools' Gala on Sunday 16 March 2014.  It was a fantastic experience and the children thoroughly enjoyed taking part.


 

We are delighted to be able to share the following positive comments that we have received following this amazing  event:

A huge thank you from James Dickinson - Head of Hertfordshire Music Service

"To all your massed choir, trumpeters and ukulele players who contributed to two such fantastic Concerts at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday.  We have received some lovely feedback including comments such as 'breath taking', 'awesome', 'blown-away' and 'I was genuinely moved'.  Thank you all so much for working so hard to learn the songs.  You were rewarded with a fabulous concert.  We are very grateful to the staff at your school who have worked so hard rehearsing the children. 

The children all deserve to be very proud of themselves and I am sure this will be a memory that will stay with them for a very long time. "

A message from Rufus Frowde - Artistic Director and Conductor for Hertfordshire Schools' Gala 2014

"I have had to wait a couple of days for the dust to settle before being able to comment coherently on the wonderful coming together of hard work, talent and excellence that resulted in an extraordinary performance on Sunday.  I have never looked forward to a concert as much as the Herts Gala 2014 and it did not disappoint.  Pride is not always viewed positively, but it is most fitting when I consider the pride that I have for Herts Music Service, its partners and all those involved in the Gala, both on stage and behind the scenes.  You achieved something truly remarkable, confirming that when a community comes together it can achieve something so much greater than the sum of its parts.  I will be reliving the life-affirming energy of Sunday for many months to come; an experience that will never leave me or those fortunate to share the day with us."
