Royal Albert Hall Concert-Year 5

Royal Albert Hall Concert

Children from Oakdale and  from around the country descended onto the streets of London and up the steps into England's most famous concert hall. They all sang brilliantly to an admiring audience and literally raised the roof. The accumulation of months practise and special workshops given by the Armonico Leader, Simon Lole, really paid off. After the success of the concert at the Lighthouse it was always going to be one of the highlights of the year but I don't think anyone could have imagined the wonderful feeling of our country's children singing in harmony with one another in such a grandiose building.   There were special guest artists including:  Harry Potter actor, Mark Williams, better known as Mr Arthur Weasley and BBC Strictly professional dancers Gorka Marquez and Dianne Buswell.  It was performed in front of HRH the Duke of Kent.
