Studio recording...

Ellie Smith had a recording session with our technician Tom Ross, and this is the impressive outcome. 

If you fancy trying your hand at recording vocals to a professional standard, see Tom to arrange a session.

Here's some tracks we've made recently... enjoy. We used Garageband on the Macs to make our own instrumentals and then recorded the vocals in the studio.

What does 4700 people singing together sound like...?

That's what the Choir will be finding out on 1st July, when they will perform as part of the 'Voices For A Better World' concert at the O2 arena. Over 4700 children from schools across the country will sing 34 Beatles songs together with several celebrities in a concert to raise money for the charity Global Angels. They will sing in front of an audience of over 10,000 people. The O2 is twice the size of Wembley, to put that into perspective! The Choir can't wait and have been practising the songs hard - which isn't too stressful if you like Beatles songs.
Some of the Choir auditioned for solos.
Here's Ellie Smith singing 'Let It Be'
And here's Megan De Wit singing 'Yesterday'
Best of luck to the girls and the Music Department are crossing our fingers for them.

Trust's Got Talent!

The first ever 'Trust's Got Talent' competition is happening this term!

Do you have the voice of an angel?
Do you drum incessantly on the desk?
Rap lyrics at every opportunity?
Dance from lesson to lesson?
Backflip your way out the door?
Recite poetry to bring the word to life?
Tell jokes until you split your sides?

Kemnal Technology College has held a talent contest for the last few years which has been a roaring success, and we are delighted to be a part of the contest this year, now that our school has joined the Kemnal Trust.
