We were delighted to be joined by local primary schools. Bakewell Methodist Junior School, Baslow St. Anne’s Primary School  and Youlgrave All Saints Primary School for S. Anselm’s Choral Day.

Throughout the morning, all the children worked extremely hard to learn three pieces, concentrating on diction, expression, tone and voice production, led by our Head of Singing, Nicola Hunt.  One piece,- ‘Shimmering, Shining Brightly’ had been composed especially for the Choral Day by Director of Music at S. Anselm’s Mr Percival who also provided accompaniment throughout the morning on the piano.

The morning culminated in a performance for the children’s parents at which they were accompanied by a string quartet and flautist from S. Anselm’s.  

Congratulations to all the children involved for their achievements.
