On Sunday 13th February The Regent’s School Whole School Choir sang with the internationally renowned Korean Tenor Opera Singer, Mr Kim Jun Man. The choir started working for this concert at the start of term 2 and they were asked to accompany Mr Kim singing a beautiful Latin song called Panis Angelicus. The song is very hard to sing but all the pupils rose to the challenge, from our Year 1 pupils to our Year 12 pupils.
Leading up to the concert we were lucky enough to have Mr Kim visit the school to work with the children in preparation for the concert. From meeting Mr Kim the pupils were in awe and thoroughly enjoyed working with him.

On Sunday morning we were taken up to the huge stage which was beautifully decorated. All the pupils were stunned at where they were getting to perform. It was their big moment, they were nervous but excited. They waited anxiously until we were introduced.
First of all the Regent’s Whole School Choir sang ‘Change my World’ which they sang at the International Round Square Conference 2010 which took place at Regent’s School. The wonderful soloists were Chloe Delango, Francis Calalang and Beatrice Chawalitnititham. Then the choir were joined by Mr Kim to perform Panis Angelicus. Our soloists were Tanya Hill and Joshua Thomas.
The performance was spotless and all the pupils performed magnificently. Overall it was a fantastic experience and Regent’s Whole School Choir are looking forward to our next performance and to hosting Mr Kim at Regent’s Summer Concert 2011.
