Choir and Orchestra Performance at St Joseph’s

Our KS2 choir and orchestra had a wonderful time this morning performing for the residents of St Joseph’s. The children have been working very hard since Easter, rehearsing during lunchtimes and after school to produce a tribute concert to ‘Stage and Screen.’ They performed songs from films and musicals such as ,The Greatest Showman, Annie, The King and I, The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady and The Wizard of Oz. The residents were so impressed and cheered for an encore of ‘Do Ri Me’ which they thoroughly enjoyed singing along to. Well done to all!
