Choir

Miss Danks and Mr Horner run our school Choir, which meet once a week after school on a Thursday.  Our Choir is open to all children of any ability, who are committed to giving up their time for learning lines and rehearsing for the many shows and concerts that they attend. They regularly sing at the Bolsterstone Christmas Fayre,  Christ Church Stocksbridge and at our Junior Carol Concert.

Deepcar St John's Choir have been truly amazing at Fox Valley. They have been performing with Bolsterstone Male Voice choir as part of Fox Valley's birthday celebrations, held on Friday 16th June.   A member of our choir was asked to help cut the cake with Mr Dransfield, and everyone from the choir got a piece of cake to bring back to school. Thank you to Miss Danks and Mrs Ashton for taking them and to Fox Valley for inviting us, it has been a pleasure helping them celebrate their 1st birthday.

        

Our choir were invited to sing, in a special weekend concert 'On you Bike' to celebrate the Tour de Yorkshire, held on Saturday 29th April at St Mary's church Bolsterstone. The concert included music from the Bolsterstone Male Voice Choir and Deepcar Brass Band as well as our children. Starting at 7pm, parents of children in our Choir are invited to attend. They have been busy practising over the last few weeks with Mrs Stewart and Miss Danks.

Each year they attend the Young Voices concert held at the Sheffield Arena. This is the biggest school choir event in the world with over 5000 children attending from all over the region. At the start of the school year, Young Voices share the words and music with all of the schools taking part and they start learning the Lyrics and Choreography, it is unbelievable how much they have to learn in such a short period of time. 

Young Voices is not just about hearing the children sing, it is actually a concert for them where they also get to see professional singers and dancers perform as well as sing and dance along with them. The mixture of music is brilliant, a total random medley ranging from Hip-Hop to Rock.  Young Voices is an incredible experience they will remember for ever.
