More than 40 key stage two children from Westfield Primary Academy represented the school at the recent Suffolk School’s Celebration of Music.
The week long celebration is held at Snape Maltings each year and gives young performers the opportunity to work alongside professional technicians and perform to a large audience in a world famous auditorium.
The children presented a programme of multicultural music, representing some of the nationalities of the students in the school.
It featured songs from Suffolk, Africa and Poland as well as the Bruno Mars composition ‘Count On Me’ which featured on the Philippines Disaster Charity CD.
Nimin Vivian also performed an Indian Dance dressed in traditional costume.
The day included a technical rehearsal on the stage, a dressing room which looked over the amazing landscape, and a workshop with Ken Burton (judge from BBC’s The Choir), where the children learnt a new song which he had written especially for the finale which featured the pupils from all the schools performing.
Music teacher, Dianne Pannell, said: “From beginning to end the day was a great experience for the children. “Many family and friends made the journey to Snape to support the children and witness a spectacle which will remain with the children for many years.”
