On the 25th January children involved in the Armonico choir raised the roof of the concert hall at the Lighthouse, Poole. The children had an intensive afternoon rehearsing with other schools from the local area. After we had practiced all the songs with the West End band and professional singers there was a short break until we hit the stage for the evening performance. Oakdale Junior was one of two schools who were chosen to perform on their own and the children did us proud. Their energy and enthusiasm was a pleasure to be a part of.
The audience really enjoyed watching and hearing the children sing and it was a pure joy to be singing with them on stage and watch them give their all.
Rehearsals have now begun for The Royal Albert Hall concert in March. We welcome Simon Lole back after the half term to give us another workshop and introduce new songs into our repertoire.
“I really liked the songs we sang and am really A huge congratulations to all of the children involved!
Mrs O’ Connor
