Camden Primary Choir Festival 2015
EPOC is delighted to be a part of this, the seventh Camden Primary Choirs Festival. The first one was back in 2003, and there were 12 schools taking part. This year there are almost 40 schools taking part and it takes place over four evenings during the week of March 2nd. We extend our thanks to Councillor Nasim Alli, who has been enormously supportive of the music happening in Camden schools.

Each school will perform songs of their own but all of them will sing the following five songs:

a children’s song from Tanzania about chasing butterflies – learned from Coren Miles who teaches music at Kentish Town Primary School.

I am a poor wayfaring stranger
an American folk song arranged by David Joyner who used to teach at Fitzjohn’s Primary School.

Mozart’s Horn Concerto number 4 the third movement
chosen as one of the BBC’s ten pieces to introduce young people to classical music. We will hear it in two ways over the week. We’ll hear the Flanders and Swann song Ill Wind – with SO many words, but first,  played as Mozart intended on the French horn.

A round of three country dances in one
written by Thomas Ravenscroft almost 400 years ago. He was an English composer who wrote lots of rounds and is known for collecting folk songs and street cries. He was the person who found “Three Blind Mice”

a modern classic by Katy Perry.
