Chesterfield Music Festival April 2015

pop choirOn Friday 24th April, Hasland Hall Pop Choir took part in the annual Chesterfield Music Festival. The Festival is made up of a large number of “classes” for a selection of ages, instruments, groups, choirs and soloists. The Pop Choir entered the Secondary School class and decided on a programme of well known and popular songs.

 At the festival, there is an adjudicator who listens and judges your performance against other people in your class section, and then decides on a mark for each performer.  Our programme started with “A Little Help from my Friends” originally sung by The Beatles and accompanied brilliantly by Mrs Hodgson.  The choir sang with enthusiasm and with smiles on their faces all the way through.  We followed that with the classic Ben E King song, “Stand By Me” with a fantastic repeated theme sung by half the choir and the wonderful melody sung by the other half of the choir. Our performance finished with Sam Smith’s song “Stay with Me”, a beautiful, heart-wrenching song which the choir sang with so much expression and emotion.

Once the other school in the class, St. Anselm’s of Bakewell, had performed, the adjudicator gave the two choirs feedback, including tips on how to improve further and also points about the songs she had particularly enjoyed.  Hasland Hall received some excellent feedback with many positive comments.  The adjudicator then revealed that both choirs would be awarded first place! So Hasland Hall were joint winners of the Secondary School Choir Class at the Chesterfield Music Festival, and very proud of that too. Students enjoyed the experience of performing in a new venue and in front of different people. We’ll be trying again next year!
