Blend Choir

demelza 200On Sat­ur­day the 14th of June, the Blend Choir hosted an all day singing event to raise money for Demelza, a well-​known children’s char­ity. The event itself was a marathon, the idea being to have con­tin­u­ous singing from 7.30am until 11.00pm, with a huge vari­ety of solo and group singers tak­ing part in half hour slots through­out the day.

KES was asked to par­tic­i­pate by the organ­iser, and there was no short­age of peo­ple who vol­un­teered. In the end, we ended up with a small num­ber of stu­dents who took it on them­selves to pre­pare pieces to sing.

The slot went amaz­ingly, with all of them singing at their best and get­ting a great deal of applause. Not only was it another exam­ple of just how much tal­ent we have at KES, but also a good expe­ri­ence for the stu­dents who, for many, it was a very dif­fer­ent arena from what they are used to.

My sin­cer­est thanks and praise to Gabi George, Ellie Clarke, Alfie Mur­ray, Mol­lie Clarke, Han­nah McGilley, Sophie Brinkman and Jen­nifer Pir­bu­dak for their stun­ning con­tri­bu­tions to the day. They were, as always, outstanding.”
