Anvil Rehearsals written by Victoria Z & Angela

This term, we are again involved in a very exciting event - the annual Berkshire Maestros Junior Music Festival at the Anvil, Basingstoke on Tuesday, 24th March.

On Tuesday 4th February the School choir went out on anvil practice trip at Thatcham Park Primary School.

Firstly we ate lunch early and got ready at the offce where Mrs Glover gave us all £1.50 to get a ticket on the private bus. Surprisingly Victoria got an extremely rare Paddington bear 50p coin. She didnt want to give it away to the bus driver but eventually gave in.

After boarding the bus we took a short ride to Thatham Park and met a very nice man called Peter who was our conductor. His pianist was called Andrew and he was given a very special award.

We did amazingly fun warm ups like practicing a silent lions roar, which was breathing and stretching and helped a lot.

We sang our hearts out and Peter made practivce very enjoyable and fun.

After a long time of singing we said goodbye and went back home.

Choir is looking forward to Pizza Express and performing in an enormous theatre called the Anvil.
