Chase Bridge School has always had a great reputation for music and supports choirs at all age groups. A small group of parents who wanted to sing considered it a bit of a shame that our children came together to enjoy music together but we didn’t have the chance. We also aspired to make music one of the ways that the school could reinforce ties with the local community- and rather than just forming a parents choir we went with the idea of a community choir to extend our appeal!
Finally… to get things going we did a ‘singing challenge’…. join the choir and in four weeks we would rehearse, learn music and perform at the school summer fair. Over 60% of the choir had never sung before but in July 2017 we exceeded all expectations and performed in front of a few hundred families at the school summer fair.
Since then we have not looked back and the choir continues to grow and bring in more members from the community and new parents.
