On Sunday 2nd February, 40 members of Presdales Junior Choir sang with the Hertford Symphony Orchestra in Hertford Theatre to celebrate 40 years of the Robert Kiln Family Trust. In the two concerts, with a theme of “Musical Tales”, we sang a series of songs which got the audience on their feet, singing and dancing along with us. We got to hear the amazing Hertford Symphony Orchestra (who were dressed up for the occasion in a variety of fancy-dress costumes, including a whole bumble bee cello section) and sing classic songs such as “All You Need Is Love” by the Beatles. We also got to hear the orchestra play well-known pieces, such as Hedwig’s Theme, and enjoy readings from well-known books, such as Winnie The Pooh, The Nutcracker (where I played Clara) and Aladdin. Both concerts in the afternoon seemed to fly past in a flash! It was an incredible experience that Presdales Junior Choir will never forget.
