Singers from three primary schools within the Dawlish Learning Partnership were thrilled to perform at Exeter Cathedral on Saturday 6th June.
The schools were invited as part of a Chorister Outreach Project by the Cathedral to reach out the children in the county and diocese to give them special and exciting singing experience within the majestic surroundings of Exeter Cathedral
Stephen Tanner, Director of Music at Exeter Cathedral School and Associate Musical Director Andrew Downton, visited Exminster School, Starcross School and Gatehouse ACE Academy for a number of workshops to teach the children the performance pieces, with the final workshop supported by Choristers from the Cathedral School.
Children from Exminster sang ‘Sing‘ by Gary Barlow and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Starcross sang the traditional song, “Somewhere there’s a forest” and Gatehouse ACE Academy children performed “We are the young” by Mary Donnelly. The children also sang three further songs together with all the other schools who were also taking part in the concert.
It was a wonderful afternoon and a fantastic experience for all our children.
