Pupils shine in preparation for BBC Music Day

Pupils are getting together to write songs with the help of musician, Roger Davies as they prepare to perform at BBC Music Day in June.

The pupils in year 5 and 6 from Keelham Primary School, Dixons Music Primary School, Marshfield Primary School and Feversham Primary Academy will sing four songs together at the event in City Park.

Roger Davies – a guitarist, vocalist and harmonica player – is hosting singing and song writing workshops with the children ahead of BBC Music Day.

In preparation for the event, Mr. Davies will visit each school and host rehearsals to enable the pupils to practise for the event.

It has been confirmed that one of the songs will be written with the help of the youngsters and will be called ‘Bradford City Serenade’.

Other songs which will be performed are:  Bradford Born ’N’ Raised, as well as On Ilkla Moor Baht ’At and Lou Reed’s Perfect Day.

BBC Music Day takes place in City Park on Friday, 9 June.

Pupils Shine in Festival of Talent

The winners of the annual “Festival of Talent”  for young people across the district’s schools have been selected following the recent finals.

Singers, dancers and other entertainers from over thirty schools took part in the event.

The City of Bradford Festival of Talent was created by former Lady Mayoress Elizabeth Sharp as a way of for pupils to express themselves and show off their skills in a variety of fields outside the classroom.

Winners of the contest will join the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Coun Geoff Reid at City Hall for afternoon tea, receive a trophy and perform at the Bradford Schools Prom next month.

The Winner of the Primary section of the City of Bradford Festival of Talent was Molly Softley from Wibsey Primary School.  The runner-up was Antoni Modlinski  from Low Ash Primary School.  Molly performed an exquisite contemporary dance while Antoni displayed his lovely voice in a song.

The Secondary section was won by the Bradford Academy Choir with a very polished choral performance.  The runner-up was Annabelle Parish, a lovely vocalist from Titus Salt School (Sixth Form).

Congratulations to all involved!
