For many, learning to sing is the beginning of a passionate relationship with their voice that can last a lifetime, but it can be frustrating, trying to find an opportunity to use these new found or developing skills in their most obvious form – live performances.
To this end, many years ago the School began performance nights to give pupils the chance to sing in front of a real audience.
This developed into the unique 'Pop Choir' En Masse, that has performed all over the country as well as releasing two singles and an album. Indeed, the first single 'One' was featured on local news when it outsold artists like Boyzone and Elton John, in the area it was released, one Christmas. It went on to be the most requested song on the local radio station’s 'selector' show.
Although that incarnation of En Masse was put on hold in 2006, we are thrilled to report that it has relaunched at River Studios and details can be found on the new En Masse website
