NEW POP CHOIR for Sleaford and the surrounding area
Singing is back again!!
Are you Year 6-13?
Would you like to sing in a new Pop Choir?
On Tuesday 28th September from 5.30 to 6.30, come along to St George's Academy Sleaford to try singing with other young people from around Sleaford. Boys and girls welcome. Come along with a group of your friends, or just by yourself if you want! The choir will run during term time, so if you need time to have a think, join us the following Tuesday instead.
The choir will be run by the Head of Music at St George's, Cat Vernon in the brand new Music Department buildings.
Your first session is completely free: you can just come along and try it out. It would help us to know who is coming if you could send an email straight away to Heather.Benson@lincolnshire.gov.uk. Or you can just turn up on 28th or 5th October. If you like it you can then sign up, and for only £45 for the whole year, you can take part in our exciting programme of rehearsals and concert events.
Has your child shown an interest in learning a musical instrument? Did you know that there is a way to access private lessons in school time? From Year 1 onwards, instrumental lessons can be undertaken by pupils.
