Generations of Song
Singers aged from under nine to over ninety took part in a unique concert in Clifton Cathedral in Bristol this month.
Generations of Song was a joint effort between member schools in the CGS Trust, the Bath Good Afternoon Choir, and the Golden Oldies group led by their founder Grenville Jones.
The range of music at the concert on March 14 was broad, ranging from reggae numbers sung by an African Caribbean ladies choir of 80-90 year-olds to popular classic and modern songs accompanied by a live staff band from Colston’s Girls’ School.
The youngest performers were seven and eight-year-olds in the Year 3 choir at The Dolphin School. Year 6 children from The Kingfisher School and pupils from Bannerman Road Community Academy also took part.
Mr England, organised the programme, which also featured a guest performance by the Bath Good Afternoon Choir.
