Rio Olympic Video Conference Choir Performance

Rio Olympic Video Conference Choir Performance

This was one of the biggest challenges for Mrs Field and her Upper School Choir. Prior to the 2016 Rio Olympics, we were invited to be part of the handover of the Olympic torch, involving a live video conference with a school in Sao Paulo. We sang a song in Portugese Brazillian. Mrs Field choose ‘A Whole New World,’ from Aladdin as the tune the pupils would already know. When translated this means, ” An Ideal World,” which seemed very fitting. Mrs Field said she had “never been more proud of a group of children in her choir.” They all learnt the song (in Portugese Brazilian) off by heart and you can hear for yourself – they surpassed all expectations with their singing and the response from the Olympic dignitaries was wonderful.
