  1. Our names our Alicia,Amelia and Lena.
    We’d want to talk about our time at the RAH.
    It was a great opportunity for us which would have never have happened if our amazing music teacher (Mrs Schneider) had a battle with Merton music.
    When we were sitting down we could see some of the teachers like: Mr presland, Miss Cascais and Miss Bimsom doing the Mexican wave which we decided to copy and managed to get most of our row doing it :D.We were very excited for the balloons but sadly they only dropped into the middle.

      

  2. The Royal Albert Hall performance was probably one of the biggest highlights of our year so far! It was really nerve racking performing in front of so many people. Our favourite part of the show was when some of the actors said there ‘poems’.
    It was hard trying to stay awake half way through the show! It was a great experience!

      

  3. It was a once in a lifetime experience and it was quite fun especially when the balloons fell.our favorite song in the Royal Albert Hall was a song to call my own
    It was really emotional and very interesting . And it was comforting to have other people (friends)at th Royal Albert Hall and that when had a lot of interesting songs to sing and it a great experience

      

  4. I thought the Royal Albert Hall Was Amazing! At first I was so Nervous, but it turned out to be really fun! I loved singing, ( As it is my favourite hobby ) And I Had a very fun time talking to the other schools and interact with different and unique people. The Most Funniest Song ever is Hillsha Fish! And my Most Favorite Songs Were ‘Walk on the Water, and ‘The River runs on & The road has travelled’. My Favourite Characters were Father Thames And Naomi. I really want to thank Sue And Adam. I really had a great time! And Loved the balloon Drop!!!

  9. We are in year 5 and we would like to give thanks to the MMF and the staff for arranging this incredible opportunity. Performing at the RAH was an amazing once in a lifetime opportunity. This was a great experience for us and we are so thankful. It will be a memory all of us will never forget. I would like to give another thanks to all the people who participated. We thought that the best part was when many colorful balloons dropped onto the orchestra. We were very proud knowing that this happened because the choir sang beautifully. Our favorite songs were the finale and Sing. The song What Would We Do Then was really catchy. Once again we,would like to give a great thanks to Pete,Adam and Soo. Thank you Merton Music Foundation!

      

  10. This was the best and ideal one in a life time opportunity! I loved the acting, the ‘Poems’, the amazing commitment and hardwork that was put in the play and other song the other songs before that! My favourite part was the finale song and naucharia de song. The ballon drop was the best part ever. The hardest part was to memorise the lyrics. I love this experience a lot. Thank you!
