Singing Success on Prep Choral Day


17 March 2023

On Monday, EHS hosted three other schools at a special Choral Day. Pupils arrived from Woodgate Primary, Chad Vale and West House Schools to join our Year 3 girls for a day of non-stop singing.

They were all excited as Suzzie Vango introduced them to the day ahead. Suzzie’s high-energy vocal workshops have gained her an international reputation as a choral leader, working with children and adults on vocal projects across Asia, the USA, the UAE and Africa. She is highly experienced and skilled in directing, devising and delivering big sings, whole school singing days and teacher-training, which she does for national organisations including the BBC, Sing Up, St David’s and Lichfield Music Festivals, Teach First and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. 

During the day the children learnt eight songs, all of which were very interactive and included many actions in addition to singing.  We were also delighted to discover that several girls were able to share the day with their brothers from West House School.

The day culminated in a fantastic performance of all they had learnt to an audience of EHS staff and pupils from Years 1 - 11.

We know that the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we thank Suzzie and Mrs Heather Howell, accompanist, for their hard work and enthusiasm.
