Thanet Schools’ Prom 2015
Kent Music and Rotary clubs from Thanet, along with nine schools in Thanet, collaborated at the fantastic venue of the Winter Gardens in Margate to perform in this year’s Schools’ Prom. St. Nicholas at Wade Primary School, The Foreland School, Priory Infants, Chilton Primary School, Cliftonville Primary School, Charles Dickens School, Upton Junior School, Dame Janet Primary School and Chatham and Clarendon all came together to perform pieces inspired by the BBC 10 Pieces theme.
It was a highly successful performance and the standard was astonishing with very polished choral, instrumental and dance pieces performed. The finale (the last movement of the Firebird Suite) was performed by St. Nicholas at Wade Primary School Choir and Chatham and Clarendon Brass and Wind ensemble. The voices of the primary school children gave an extra texture to the piece which added a unique element. The performance was well attended by an enthusiastic audience and the children enjoyed the opportunity to see and hear other schools perform.
