Now in its fifth year, the North London Singing School Festival, hosted by Grimsdell Mill Hill Pre-Prep, takes place in March. Seven local schools including Grimsdell will take part, singing songs together and performing in their respective choirs
2nd February 2017 — The event will be organised by Sing Up – an organisation dedicated to providing excellent singing provision for schools. The idea is to showcase the power of singing and leave us all inspired. This year, Dominic Peckham, one of the National Youth Choir conductors, has been invited and will run the children’s workshop first and then deliver a development workshop to the teachers as well.
Grimsdell’s singing has gone from strength to strength, culminating in being praised as 'excellent' in singing and music by the Independent Schools' Inspectorate. Grimsdell's Toffee Bear Choir has performed at Barnet Music Festival, at the Royal Festival Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall and on Classic FM to name a few!
The infant singing festival is a further step to spread singing, and they're proud to now call it an annual event. "All the children have a fantastic time," says Chao Cox, Head of Music at Grimsdell. "It's wonderful that we share our singing experience with other schools and bring our community together."
