Reading Phoenix Choir spent a fantastic afternoon and evening with the talented pupils of Oxford Road Community School on Saturday 8th February. The children took part in a workshop in the afternoon with David Crown, followed by a concert in Argyle Community Church to a packed audience, raising money for the Mustard Tree Foundation.
This is the fifth workshop the choir has done with local schools, and they have been hugely successful both in terms of raising money for good causes and inspiring young people to enjoy choral music. The Head of Oxford Road Community School, Claire Hurst, said the following:
“Tonight was very special. The choir is just incredible and I was so proud of my children for their performance and their true enjoyment of you guys. I would jump at the chance to do that again, it was very moving watching you all. Please thank all the choir for their support and encouragement – they were such an inspiration to the children (and I got a great deal from it too!). They were lovely with the children and it will be a lasting experience”.
Please get in touch if you would like young people in your area to share this experience!
