Wellington Choral Day
Miss Cheetham and Mr Tillbrook took 26 enthusiastic members of the Senior Choir to Wellington College for the Annual Prep Schools’ Choral Day. The day, made up of 350 pupils from various prep schools, was led by Tom Appleton, co-founder and Artistic Director of the Come and Sing Company.
The children sang a variety of songs, from the slightly bizarre ‘Something Keeps Drinking Half Of The Local Swimming Pool’ to the beautifully ethereal ‘This Other World’ by contemporary composer Will Todd. The Bishopsgate Senior Choir sang their hearts out all day and were rewarded with a hot tea of sausage, chips and beans (a particular highlight!) before the final rehearsal.
The day finished with a performance of all the songs that they had learnt, with the chapel overflowing with parents, teachers and friends. It was an exciting day for all!
