The Sons of Pitches – a review by Charlotte Davey, Year 13
The choral workshop by The Sons of Pitches was a thrilling experience, offering the opportunity to rehearse with and learn from amazingly talented and passionate professionals. Our choir picked up the ‘a cappella’ skills pretty quickly and it really helped us to understand the process of creating songs. We learnt how to build up a song and make a new arrangement by pulling apart well-known music and truly making it our own.
The audience loved our remix of ‘You Raise Me Up’ and were truly impressed by the product, especially in the small amount of time we had. We are definitely going to apply these new skills in our own practices and hopefully use them in future concerts.
My friends, family, and the audience of over 400, were blown away by the evening performance by the group, who were incredible. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from them. They were lovely company and definitely headed for great things in the future.
The Sons of Pitches have since tweeted 'Had an incredible time at @MalvernStJames yesterday. Lovely girls with great voices - you raised us up!'
