Wilmcote CofE (Voluntary Aided) Primary School, Church Road, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwickshire, CV37 9XD, UK
Welcome to our school
Some members of the choir at Wilmcote School are once again singing with Ex Cathedra's Junior Academy at the Birmingham Royal Ballet's performances of The Nutcracker at Birmingham Hippodrome.
Rehearsals took place at both school and the Hippodrome where it was a wonderful opportunity for the children to work with professional singers, vocal coaches and other children; experiencing behind the scenes of a world class show!
Lucy, 'I really enjoyed singing in The Nutcracker. It was very exciting down in the pit singing in front of lots of people. The atmosphere was exhilarating and you could hear the audience clapping and cheering. There were over thirty professional musicians playing at their best. That was when I thought, 'I'm in the Nutcracker!'. Thank you to Mrs Ledgard for inviting us.
One of our parents said, 'I can honestly say that hearing the children sing during such a spectacular and magical show moved me to tears. Knowing my daughter was part of only six children from little old Wilmcote joining with the others to create such magic was so moving. I have a memory that will stay with me forever.
