BBC Children in Need Choir
Fitzalan Music Department are thrilled to contribute to the BBC Children in Need Choir, for the second time.
Children from across the UK have taken part in performing 'Fix You' by Coldplay. Jaiza Khan from Year 8 is representing Fitzalan and South Wales in the BBC performance.
A film crew from the BBC were in school to record Jaiza rehearsing with the music department and taking part in a Zoom rehearsal with other young people from across the UK. During half term, we went to Cardiff Castle where the performance was recorded for the National BBC Children in Need performance (Which was aired on 13/11/2020)
On Sunday 15th November, there was another programme, 'The Big Welsh Round-Up for Children in Need' on BBC One Wales. This is the program that takes a 'behind the scenes' look at the making of the choir in Wales as well as including interviews and rehearsals with the pupils in Wales.
We would like to thank the BBC for including us in the events this year, it has been a wonderful experience. We are so excited and hope that you will tune in to see the programmes!
