Full Circle Opera - Royal Albert Hall
On 12th November, Choir had an opportunity to sing at The Royal Albert Hall as part of a mass choir. They were singing an opera "Full Circle" written by the young people of Newham, for the young people of Newham and performed by the young people of Newham. The opera is about young people's experience of living in Newham but overcoming all adversities to succeed.
Our journey started in September with workshops and rehearsals at Cumberland School and Lister School as well as a small launch workshop with Newham Music Trust. There was a lot of work to do, singing in parts and singing as part of a mass choir of 700 people.
The actual day was extremely long but totally enjoyable and so memorable. We think the Albert Hall is: 'Absolutely amazing,' 'Breathtaking' Really good!' We would recommend everyone to take the opportunity to perform there. A fabulous experience!
