Senior Choir has begun!

Hey Awesome Choir People!

It was great to have over 50 children coming to join our senior choir on Tuesday!  For those who forgot or couldn't come remember to come next week!

Below are the words to the two songs we went through!  Practise them at home or with your choir friends.  Remember that we want you to come every week so that we can be the best we can be.  I've also added a link to Warm Pacific Greetings so you can sing along!!

Here are the words to the other song we started "Why We Swing"

A sound of hope, a sound of peace
A sound that celebrates and speaks what we believe
A sound of hope
A sound so strong
It’s amazing what is given when we share the song

Chorus
This is why we sing
Why we lift our voice
Why we stand as one in harmony
This is why we sing
Why we lift our voice
Take my hand and sing with me

Soothe the soul, mend a heart
Being together lives that have been torn apart
Share the joy
Find a friend
It’s a never-ending gift that circles back again

Chorus
This is why we sing
Why we lift our voice
Why we stand as one in harmony
This is why we sing
Why we lift our voice
Take my hand and sing with me

Bridge
Music builds a bridge
It can tear down the walls
Music is a language that can speak to one and all

Chorus
This is why we sing
Why we lift our voice
Why we stand as one in harmony
This is why we sing
Why we lift our voice
Take my hand and sing with me
This is why we sing


Don't forget we are looking for a new name for our Senior Choir - have a think, it needs to relate to singing in some way and you might like to include Meadowbank in some way!  Bring your ideas next Choir!

Happy Singing 
Mrs Bickley
