St Michael's Choir sings with Knebworth Community Chorus

Choir
On Saturday 9th December 2017 our choir joined Knebworth Community Chorus for their 'Carols for Christmas' concert. The choir performed: 'One World,' 'Turn Down The Lights,' 'I Saw Three Ships' and 'Get on Board this Train.' They sang beautifully, and received many compliments both from the audience and the Community Chorus. Thank you Mrs Hewitt and Mrs Wadey for all your efforts and thank you to all the parents who came along to support the children. In the second half there were performances from some St Michael's instrumentalists. Isabelle and Harriet played a recorder duet 'Spring from The Four Seasons' by Vivaldi. William played two pieces on piano and Megan two on violin. We were really pleased to welcome back a former St Michael's pupil Erine, now in Y7 at Monks Walk, who performed a flute duet with Mrs Hewitt. The children performed very well and received terrific applause from the audience! Thank you St Michael's choir and instrumentalists for showcasing music at St Michael's  - you were excellent and should be really proud of yourselves!
