Prep 1 & 2
Formed in 1996, this is our starter choir for boys and girls aged 4-7. There are no auditions—the thirty or so children in each choir are encouraged to enjoy music and develop their potential in a friendly atmosphere.
The choir meets in the Anna Haxworth Music Building at Cherwell School. The sessions are structured but informal, and are run by Hannah Rhodes & Lucia Boué, with the help of students from the senior choir.
Within this framework we explore a variety of musical styles, concepts and themes, drawing from both traditional repertoire and other less familiar sources. During the morning the children have the opportunity to work both together and in groups, to allow further development of their aural and other musical skills.
