School Choir

Singing is good for you emotionally, physically and socially. It can help to develop a child’s imagination and creativity and allows them to try new skills in a safe environment. Being part of a school choir creates a sense of togetherness, gives children a sense of belonging and helps them to make new friends. A place for sharing, laughter and fun. 

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

On Saturday 15th June, Deepcar St John's choir will be singing at Stocksbridge High School. They will be performing along with other schools in the local area as part of the Valley Music Festival. At the festival, they will be performing their own interpretation of Carmen. To help them prepare for the big event, we have been very privileged to have Hilary Osbourne working with choir on their vocal and performance techniques. In assembly recently,  the choir gave a short performance to the rest of the school on the work they have done so far.

More information about the festival can be found on the Valley Music Festival Facebook page.

We are very grateful to Miss Danks, who gives up her time each week to run choir practise and to accompany them to many musical events. 

Each year Deepcar St John's Choir attend the Young Voices concert held at the Sheffield Arena, this year on the 15th January. 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 the schools taking part and they start learning the Lyrics and Choreography ready for the big day. They had such an amazing time, sang lovely songs and made some lovely memories. It is a trip of a lifetime and one that they will always remember. Thank you Mr Horner and Miss Danks' for arranging this amazing experience for our Choir yet again.
