Quire in Education – Spring Term 2011

Home > Blog > Quire in Education – Spring Term 2011

On Wednesday March 16th a small group of Quire members led by director Professor Bill Tamblyn spent a day at Tollesbury Primary School. Quire were there on the invitation from the Headteacher to Quire member Christina Moon to bring ‘her choir’ to the school. Christina herself has a wonderful voice and it was so uplifting for the Quire to hear such excellent class singing from her class and indeed from the school as a whole.

Then on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th March 24th Quire answered a similar request from Heathlands C of E Primary School to present workshop days with three classes. Here, too, there are two members of Quire; Carol, a teacher and Sarah, a parent-helper.   Quire visited the school last year and again we were astonished at the quality and enthusiasm of the singing by the children. Nothing was beyond them – 4-part rounds, songs in obscure African tribal languages, even a jolly Mexican chorus (in Spanish of course! ).

Two more schools to come – Fingringhoe C of E on April 28th and Parsons Heath on May 25th. Do contact us if you would like a Quire in Education Workshop. We work through numbers from the Sing Up initiative together with world music from our own repertory.
