I am 6 weeks away from leaving Island School and yesterday, the Island School Year 7 Training Choir, which I set up in August 2014, had their final performance conducted me.
They took part in Choral Evensong at St. John's Cathedral - something I get to conduct once or twice a year.
This is the kind of singing I cut my teeth on as a young singer (with the Bluecoat C.of E. School, Coventry choir), and I was so happy to be able to introduce these 13 students to it. Who knows, perhaps it planted the seed in one of them that this kind of singing is cool?? Only time will tell.
