The Big Gospel Project - 19th April
On Wednesday 19th April, some of our Year 5 and 6 children took part in the Big Gospel Project. Organised by The FitzWimarc School, this was a great opportunity for children from schools in the Rayleigh area to learn how to sing gospel and to be taught by one of the best vocal choirs in Europe, The London Community Gospel Choir. Hosted at FitzWimarc School, the 200 pupils were put through their paces during the day, and were taught how to sing in the gospel style.
Then in the evening, they all went to perform at the Palace Theatre in a spectacular event.
This was a fantastic day, and all the children thoroughly enjoyed this great opportunity to sing with one of the best choirs, and they performed brilliantly at the evening performance as well.
A big thank you to The FitzWimarc School for organising this event, and to Miss Bromley for looking after the Hockley children during the day.
The experts show how it is done!
