Redbridge schoolchildren rehearsing ahead of tonight’s Royal Albert Hall choral festival
Redbridge schoolchildren are going through their final paces this afternoon ahead of their big night at the Royal Albert Hall.
More than 1,800 schoolchildren from across the borough are practising for the Redbridge Schools’ Choral Festival at the prestigious South Kensington venue.
They will wow proud parents and music fans with performances of musical numbers, rock hits and specially commissioned pieces accompanied by Redbridge Music School symphony orchestra.
Primary and secondary pupils have been running through songs including Any Dream Will Do, and a medley of songs by Queen.
Children will pack the seats around a full orchestra and choir and join in the singing in tonight’s performance.
