Feedback about the School's Prom
'A very big thank you for all the hard work that has gone into the Sing Up Massed Choir events. I was extremely honoured to be there to witness the Royal Albert Hall debut and immensely proud of all of the young people and their performance. It will be an occasion for each and every one of the young people and their teachers to treasure.'
Gill Cooper, Head of Arts and Culture, City of York Council
'Thank you all so much for your huge efforts and hard work that enabled us to go the Royal Albert Hall. It really was an amazing experience for children, teachers and parents. It will certainly be a lasting memory for everyone.'
Caroline Gilderdale, Deputy Head, Dunnington CE Primary School
'Thank you! We are still reflecting (and will be for many months and years!) on the amazing musical experience we were fortunate to be part of at The Royal Albert Hall this week. The whole concert, the venue and the atmosphere contributed to making a very special occasion for everyone involved. All the children from every school in York were brilliant in their attitude and in their performance. This was an inspirational experience that truly promoted the power of music and followed beautifully from performing at York Minster.'
Stuart Outram, Head Teacher, Hempland Primary School
'I am writing to thank you for organising the York Primary School Choir for the Schools Prom. It was so thrilling and I am sure the experience of singing in the Royal Albert Hall to an audience of over five thousand people will long remain in the minds of the children who took part. The benefits of singing and performing are numerous for children and I do hope the NCEM will consider organising something like this again. We wish you every success in your educational outreach programmes.'
Andy Herbert, Head Teacher, Fishergate Primary School
'The children and staff involved all got a tremendous amount from the project in terms of both the musical experience and the experience of performing in two great venues. I doubt they will ever forget the experience of taking part. The choral leader's training provided was also really valuable - especially to be able to observe a professional working with your own choir, allowing you to pick up good tips!! Many thanks for all the work that went into organising the project - much appreciated.'
Clare Mason, Music Coordinator, Park Grove Primary School
'Many congratulations on the fabulous organisation of the Schools Prom. We knew exactly what to expect and, despite variations in timings dictated by the Royal Albert Hall, you planned things very well indeed. Many thanks for all your hard work and effort. It really paid off and went so smoothly. We all had a wonderful time and experience.'
