On Friday 24th January a group of GCSE Music students went to the Watford Colosseum to take part in the BBC’s ‘Come and Sing Broadway’. Our GCSE students from Park High School were joined by hundreds of high school students from around the area, to form a huge chorus which packed the Colosseum. Singing alongside the BBC singers and accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra, we sang a selection of some of Broadway’s finest musical hits, including additional music specially composed for the event. The singing workshop was invigorating, working on vocal technique and learning a lot of new music in a very short amount of time. The morning workshop culminated in an afternoon concert which was recorded and is now available for broadcast on the BBC. The day was a wonderful experience for students to get together with other musicians, really challenge a range of musical skills, and feel what it is like to sing along with some of the country’s leading vocalists and be accompanied by one of the country’s most prestigious orchestras. A fantastic time was had by all!
