We had a great open-air schools’ concert at Hope in the Park in Marlow this Sunday afternoon! You’d have hoped it might have been spring weather, but it was flipping freezing … the day before the heat-wave began, doh! Yet still we had seven school choirs, ranging from 15 to 55 in size, singing their hearts out with great individual songs, and then a brilliant massed choir half-hour finale. The amazingly large audience sat on groundsheets, or stood huddling together, or sat on sun-chairs, as only the British can, in what felt like near-arctic conditions! There was a lovely variety of songs, some from famous Shows, some old well-known favourites, some new songs, some with actions, and six of mine: a funky two-part song Shine your light! (Christingle Rock), sung excellently by Holy Trinity school; the anthem You are my Brother (from Hosanna Rock), and a beautiful four-part round Peace on earth (from Rock around the Flock), brilliantly performed by Foxes Piece school; and then, superbly sung, complete with actions, by the massed choir: Superkids Rock the planet!, Children of Hope, and We’ve got Power! The latter two songs are available from iTunes and Spotify, but for reasons unknown they’re found by keying in Redhead Music first, rather than Sheila Wilson as you do with the rest of my iTunes music. Who can understand it?! But one thing’s for sure: the seven schools of Marlow were WONDERFUL on Sunday, and those 250 children didn’t just sing ‘Superkids’, they actually were and are Superkids! PS The teachers were all amazing, too. And they sure can jive!
