On Wednesday 20th November, our Young Voices group attended a workshop with Mark DeLisser at Kelham Hall.
Mark DeLisser is a world-renowned vocal coach, arranger and choral director who has taught at many recognised institutions across the globe. His workshops aim to build confidence in pupils whilst improving their vocal technique.
The workshop began with a vocal warm up, with the pupils copying the different sounds that Mark DeLisser made with his voice. The pupils then learnt, practiced and performed two songs which included a harmony, as well as having the chance to do some freestyle dancing.
Finally, children and staff were given the opportunity to sing a solo into the microphone for everybody to hear. Our pupils loved taking part in this and were very persuasive in volunteering Miss Bennett to perform a solo!
Our pupils thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, and staff were very proud of their outstanding behaviour throughout the day.
