New community choir launched with Penn Fields School

Highfields is hoping to raise the roof with the launch of a new community choir in conjunction with neighbouring Penn Fields School.

The Highfields and Penn Fields Community Choir will meet for the first time on Thursday, March 16th from 3.40pm-4.40pm at Penn Fields School.

The choir, which is open for all students, staff and parents, will then meet after school every Thursday during term time. It will be led by ‘choir master’ Andy Womble, from Wolverhampton Music Service.

The project is the latest link-up between the two schools. Students from Penn Fields appeared in our recent spectacular stage production of High School Musical and work is ongoing on an exciting arts project celebrating the life and works of William Shakespeare. The schools secured 'Spirit of 2012' Olympic legacy funding to support the 'Emerge' project, which will culminate in a Festival on Sunday, April 23rd.

Highfields’ Head of Performance, Ms S Bishop, said: “We are delighted to be launching our new community choir.

“It is open to all students, parents and staff from both Highfields and Penn Fields. It doesn’t matter what level you consider yourself as a singer, it’s not X Factor - just a fun, friendly gathering to enjoy a sing song!"
