The St Mary and St Andrews Catholic Primary School Choir in Barton comprises of children from KS2 and has been established for over six years. Priding ourselves on inclusivity and diversity, we celebrate differences through a shared love of music. We love to sing a range of musical genres from musical theatre to songs that represent our values as a faith school.
We practice each Wednesday lunchtime and our hard work is matched with lots of fun – our warm up exercises are particularly creative! Throughout our rehearsals, the older children are given the opportunity to lead singing activities and they love to encourage the younger members to develop their confidence.
Our choir perform regularly in front of the whole school and parents in our assemblies and masses, and we love performing with ‘Let’s Go Sing’ at King George’s Hall in Blackburn. We also enjoy singing for our local elderly community at Christmas time and always finish our academic year with a momentous choir concert, which is popular and always well received by families and friends.
Our aim is to sing our hearts out with joy so that our audience feels our love and passion for music!
Occasionally, special guests come to our school to support and conduct a local community choir who have visited our school and sang with our children!
