Bratislava Big Sing 2017

25th March was a day that the Junior and Boys' choirs had been waiting for.
It was the 2nd annual Bratislava Big Sing! 

The choirs had been rehearsing the music since September and on Saturday they were joined by children from other schools in Bratislava, Vienna and Budapest. Locally, we had QSI and Cambridge Schools, we were also joined by Amadeus and Danube International Schools from Vienna and our sister school BISB Budapest.  

We came together in school during the morning to rehearse with the piano and to get to know each other a bit better through playing some silly games and singing some silly songs.  

After a pizza lunch we moved on to the radio building to join the live band and a cappella group who were already rehearsing there. The students were given their Big Sing T-shirts and at last looked like one huge choir. The rehearsals went really well and the students were introduced to 'The Humberside Six' who were to perform in the concert and who were also performing a song with the Big Sing Choir.  

The Humberside Six performed Black is the Colour with the choir and after a quick rehearsal decided not to sing the solo, they asked that we pick a student to sing it. It was a hard choice as there were many talented soloists, eventually we picked Lottie from Budapest School who is playing Annie next month in their show, and also our very own Louisa Laursen. They sang the solo jointly and very beautifully, providing a special stand out moment in the concert.  

 

After a couple of hours of rehearsal with the band the audience arrived and it was time to put a show on. The choir started with a competition, with Miss Howarth's side and Mrs. Trout's side battling it out with an amazing Kumela Vista call and response before joining forces on 'Sing Together', embodying what the whole concert was about.   

10 songs and 2 a cappella appearances later they finished the concert off with a rousing rendition of 'I'm a believer', with the Boys' Choir belting out the Shrek interjections that they learned earlier in the year for the secondary show.   

Mrs Hatinova's band made up of the peri teaching team were fantastic and the students loved being part of it.  As everyone left they were already talking about next year. We can't wait!
