‘Haringey Goes Wild’ at the Royal Albert Hall

Last Monday (the 4th of June) Form 6 were all lucky enough to be able to perform at the Royal Albert Hall alongside many other schools in Haringey. The performance we were in was called Haringey Goes Wild. As Mr Desmond (the Head of Music and Performing Arts in Haringey) explained to us the ‘wild’ has two meanings. Firstly, going wild and crazy like at a party (this is what Mr Desmond called the show) and secondly wild as in nature because all of the songs were concerned with wildlife. Also, the majority of the songs were composed by people in Haringey.

Whilst we were there we sung two songs which were 'Meadowsong' by Kate Stilitz  which comprised of four separate songs about nature and 'Coldfall Woods' by Laura Forrest-Hay. These were both composed especially for the event. My overall favourite song was 'Home' which we sung the chorus. This was also about Haringey!

We also had the opportunity to listen to some amazing young musicians including the Haringey VOX choir, the HYM (Haringey Young Musicians) Steel Orchestra who played the steel drums and Madeleine Baron who played amazing piano.

It was a privilege to be part of such a big event at an iconic venue. This event also supported one of our school core values: to be ambitious.
