Proud parents and music lovers at Whyteleafe School can relive the highlight of the school’s musical year in the comfort of their own home after a DVD of the choir’s Christmas appearance at the Royal Albert Hall was made available to buy.
Last December Whyteleafe’s pupils were part of a 1,400-strong choir taking part in the annual Christmas Celebration concert, organised by the CLIC Sargent children’s cancer charity.
Appearing alongside the children were performers including former X Factor star Stacey Solomon, dance acts Urban Strides and West End Kids, and folk hip-hop duo Nizlopi. The concert raised £158,000 for young people affected by cancer and their families, and organisers are hopeful that sales of the DVD, through the Pembrokeshire Videos website, will further boost that figure.
“Whyteleafe really prides itself on how active its music department is, and this annual concert is the most high-profile and prestigious example,” said head teacher Mr Marsh. “There’s a waiting list to join the choir, who have regular performances outside school, there are recorder groups for every age group and in Year 4 all pupils get the chance to learn the clarinet – music is a really important part of what we offer at the school, and the success we’ve had shows how much the children appreciate that and embrace. The
chance to perform at such a world-class venue as the Royal Albert Hall is almost like an end of year treat for the choir, but it’s one they thoroughly deserve.
"They put on a wonderful performance on a great night, so I hope plenty of people buy the DVD to support a great cause and also to see something of which the whole school can be very proud.”
