Summer School 2014

Fifty of FCMG’s finest singers came together in August for a week to work together on a Choral Concert and a production of Weber’s Der Freischutz.

In addition to a fantastic concert featuring a number of challenging modern works, the choir were excellent in the Opera, featuring an imaginative ‘Glow in the Dark’ set design.

 

Smile With Me

For the past 2 years FCMG has been working regularly with Badanamu, a South Korean learning company teaching English to children aged 2 to 8. Last summer we took a group from Intermediate and Senior Choirs into the studio to record their latest song “Smile With Me” which includes a solo by one of our youngest Senior Choir members, Jack Chambers and the final animated film has just been released – enjoy!

Congratulations to everyone involved in the Intermediate and Beginners Choir workshop performance of Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat which took place at the end of the 2013 summer term.

Sarah Forbes and Janie Mack – the choir directors – with their fabulous accompanists Jenny Gould and Raymond Mack, took the audience on a multicoloured journey through Andrew Lloyd Webber’s much loved childrens musical – the culmination of this terms joint rehearsals with the two younger FCMG choirs.  We had some rousing choruses from the Beginners and a whole host of terrific solo performances from members of the Intermediate choir.
