‘A Brighter Sound 2017’ Concert At the Royal Festival Hall
First, we travelled by public transport (bus and train) and then we arrived at the wonderful Royal Festival Hall! Once all of the primary choirs were settled in (and we had got our wrist bands) we saw where we were performing and then all of us started practising all of the songs such as ‘Ain't no mountain’, ‘Disco Lives’, ‘Wake me up’, ‘Feeling Good’, ‘Hurry Gurdy Man’ and ‘ABBAsolutely fabulous’. After we had finished we went to our room and we had the most amazing tea ever. Then we went up to the balcony, which was at the top of the auditorium and we started to watch the show including the majestic orchestra, the brilliant opera and the musical drama groups. One of the best acts, apart from us of course, were children who could not hear, see or were mute. Then we performed with the orchestra. It was... brilliant!! Everybody loved it we all thought we got the loudest cheer!!!!! After that, we met our parents and everyone was amazed!

A note from Hannah Gomersall, Governor to Mrs Grigg and Mrs Chapman
Just to pass on my congratulations for a splendid concert this evening in the RFH. It was so fun and uplifting and must have taken hours of rehearsals to get the moves to "Ain't no mountain high enough" right!
It was also wonderful to see such a large turn-out of Granard staff in the audience supporting and cheering loudly. Thanks also to Miss Marsh for suggesting I come along.
Well done to all. We are so lucky to have opportunities like this evening and to have Mrs Chapman working with us!
