Prep Schools' Singing Festival
On Friday 3rd March our Music Department was joined by over 130 pupils from five local prep schools for our annual Singing Festival. This year, Castle Court, Chafyn Grove, Dumpton, Durlston Court and Yarrells took to the stage for an afternoon of fun workshops and rehearsals led by Canford Music staff.
It was great to see the pupils performing alongside some of Canford’s singers, and most importantly, having a lot of fun making music together. The theme this year was music from Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s musical ‘Cats’, and after the pupils’ hard work in the afternoon we were delighted to be able welcome their families to the Music School for an informal concert in the evening which was a resounding success.
