Senior Choir is a free choir for Years 5 & 6 pupils which rehearses on Tuesdays after school 3:30-4:30 with the Specialist Music Teacher Miss Neil-Smith in the Music Room. Rehearsals will be starting on Tuesday 10th September.
Senior Choir places are allocated on an invitation basis not bookable through laser. Junior Choir members will automatically become members of Senior choir when they go into Year 5, providing they have been committed to Junior Choir rehearsals.There are 50 places in Senior choir meaning I will have an additional 10 places to offer each year in the Senior choir for those who join the school later or may have missed out on Junior choir. Places will be allocated from the waiting list. To join the waiting list pupils must express enthusiasm for singing and arrange a short informal audition with the specialist Music teacher (this can be arranged at anypoint during the school year). All children are given the chance to informally audition in their music lessons in the summer term (sing happy birthday) or during breaktimes/lunchtimes if they prefer.This is because there are limited places and this is currently the fairest method of allocation. All children who audition will be added to the waiting list. The Senior Choir register for 2019-2020 is below.
Both the Senior and the Junior will be representing Fielding at performances in the Community, though the 2 choirs will have different performance opportunities. In the Autumn term the Senior Choir will be focusing on the repertoire in preparation for Young Voices concert at the 02 in January 2020.
