Over the last week we have been very excited to welcome Mary Woodvine into Mounts Bay Academy to run some singing workshops with our year 10 musicians.
Mary is a professional singer, actor and choir master who helps to run the 50 degrees choir in Penzance. She is a highly regarded actor, with credits on a number of feature films, mainstream TV, and top level theatre companies.
During two sessions Mary has been working with 7 of our gifted and talented year 10 musicians to develop their vocal skills. The students leave on Wednesday to travel to Germany on a cultural exchange programme called the Comenious Project, joining other schools from around Europe. They will be learning harmonies on 2 Beatles songs that they will perform as part of a Beatles 50th anniversary festival in Ausburg.
We will welcome the international partner schools on the project into Mounts Bay next year. Look out for news of the Commenius Project over the next week on the website.
