Choir perform with Young Voices at the O2!
On Monday 5th February, fifty of our most talented singers from Key Stage 2 travelled to London’s iconic O2 Arena to perform in the Young Voices concert to a sell-out crowd of 20,000 people! After a full term of rehearsals at school, our choir had prepared fourteen fantastic songs and medleys (many including awesome dance routines) and were very excited to share these with family and friends. We arrived at the O2 at 12.30pm and, after a quick lunch break, got straight into rehearsing with the other schools and band. We especially loved singing with The Magnets, Alfie Sheard and Natalie Williams, who were the Young Voices special guests. The concert began at 7pm and was a dazzling array of wonderful singing, enthusiastic dancing and exciting lighting. Every single choir member performed brilliantly and Miss Kropman could not be more proud of them. Thank you very much to all of the staff that accompanied us on the trip and to all of the parents for your incredible support!
Orchestral Day at Haileybury College
On Friday 26th January, nineteen talented musicians from Brookmans Park travelled to Hertford to spend the day at Haileybury College. We took part in a fantastic day of music-making, where, along with ten other schools, we formed an orchestra. The morning consisted of sectional rehearsals, which were followed by lunch in the school's dining room, where scenes from Harry Potter had been filmed! We then got the opportunity to take part in a pilates session before coming together as a full orchestra to rehearse throughout the afternoon. At the end of the day, family and friends were invited to watch the concert, where we performed pieces such as Dvorak's 'New World Symphony' and Sibelius' 'Finlandia'. The standard was truly outstanding and Miss Kropman could not have been prouder of the effort, progress and behaviour of all of our children.
