Year 3 Choral Workshop at Bradfield College

Eight budding choristers from Year 3 took part in a choral workshop with the international award-winning British vocal quintet, Apollo5. This acapella group is part of the VCM Foundation, with a commitment to providing inspiring musical opportunities for young people and we were treated to a variety of engaging warm-up exercises that prepared all parts of our body ready for singing, not just our voices.

We were then taught a couple of songs – both with actions and one sung as a round which were sung alongside the group and young leaders from Bradfield  (if you look carefully you may spot two ex-Elstree boys amongst the young leaders!). At the end the boys were treated to a large home-made cookie before being shown some of the sights of Bradfield by Mrs Kidson, including the Greek amphitheatre.
