We had a lovely time today with the young musicians and singers of Discovery College in Discovery Bay, Lantau. We began with an impromptu, close harmony concert in the outdoors for the whole school to enjoy after which we worked with the senior choir whose directors, Dion & Michael, were keen for us to stretch the choir’s performance and improvisational capabilities.
The choir members responded really well to Ruth and Ben’s fun rhythm and singing games. Robbie then taught the children a pentatonic round over which everyone sang Swing Low, Sweet Chariot to great effect. DC Choir treated us to their rendition of Skyfall, accompanied ably by one of the students, and we finished with an improvisation of The Beach Boys’ “Barbara Ann”.
This is an inspiring centre of learning with a happy staff and responsive children. We look forward to returning next year and to our continued friendship with Discovery College.
