Elms Choir Provides Festive Lift Off at East Midlands Airport
Anything Gareth Malone can do The Elms Junior School and Nursery can do better, as The Elms Choir provided musical festive cheer to travellers at East Midlands Airport this week.
After a choir from Manchester Airport sung an uplifting welcome to flyers in a recent episode of the popular BBC show, The Choir, so the 26-strong Elms Choir, from Years 5 and 6, brought smiles to the faces of hundreds of travellers during a 90-minute carolling treat.
The performance was one of several the youngsters are undertaking in the local community during this Christmas period, with other recitals also taking place at the Westfield Derby Shopping Centre as well as the school's own carol services.
Lesley Pattison, Director of Music at The Elms Junior School and Nursery, said: "The real joy of singing comes from performing to an appreciative audience and the smiles and reaction to the children's singing in the community has left them all wanting to do more. The children have been singing seasonal songs as well as traditional carols and we hope everyone who has enjoyed hearing them sing has been left feeling just that little bit more Christmassy!"
