Last Friday, the St Michael's choir visited the Philharmonic hall for the annual 'ISING' event. The children had a fantastic day singing and dancing to pop music along with schools from across Liverpool. The behavior from the choir children was outstanding and the children were complemented on their matching Choir t shirts.
Moyo 'The Ising was fun because we sang all day long in the Philharmonic and we even got to go on stage!'
Our amazingly talented St Michael’s choir took part in a ‘choir of the year competition’ at St Francis on Thursday.
The children showed incredible confidence and determination as they battled it out with the other schools from across the local area.
St Michael’s were praised on there beautiful singing voices and great enthusiasm as they sang ‘This is me’ from the Greatest showman soundtrack.
Although we didn’t win, the children had a wonderful experience and were given the chance to sing in front of a large audience- who were all clapping and singing along as we performed.
Elise ‘We didn’t get a trophy but in my heart we won!’
St Michael’s choir look forward to next year when we hope to take the win!
Can we also thank the many parents who attended. It is lovely to see the children’s faces when they see a loved one in the crowd.
Choir club runs every Tuesday from 3.20- 4.15
