Choir News

On Tuesday 19th September, we welcomed Andrew, a member of the Glyndebourne Chorus, and his colleague Claire to Rotherfield School. Andrew led a workshop for the choir to help the choir prepare for the One Voice Christmas performance at Glyndebourne. Andrew was very complimentary about the children's singing and phrasing. He taught us some techniques, such as correct posture and breathing, to further improve our performance. Andrew also sang Danny Boy during our whole school assembly and answered questions about singing and his operatic career. He wanted to encourage children to keep singing for fun throughout their lives.
Glyndebourne offers free workshops and performance opportunities for children aged 9 and above.
