SEAFORD College Choir has been chosen to sing at the forthcoming tour of Gary Barlow - and Observer readers can win tickets to the concert.
The 20 choristers will perform with Gary on his 2012 Jubilee composition ‘Sing’ on Wednesday, April 23 at the Bournemouth International Arena.
Choristers have been chosen from both the prep school and senior school.
Year 12 pupil Holly Graham said: “To get the chance to meet Gary Barlow is amazing but to be able to sing with him is unbelievable.
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I’ll never forget.
“We are practicing hard during our Easter holidays to make sure we are perfect on the night.
“The choir knew a while ago but his record company asked us to keep it a secret until he’d performed his first concert.
“It’s been really hard not to tell all of my friends.”
Sara Reynolds, head of voice and choirs at Seaford said: “I am so thrilled we have been given yet another marvellous opportunity to show how well the choirs here at Seaford College are singing.
“The choristers who have been chosen are working so hard and are enjoying the experience enormously.
“I am just sad we couldn’t take all 80 of the children who sing in choirs here!
“The choir keep saying they don’t want this experience to end, they just can’t wait to meet Gary on the night and sing in front of the packed out arena.
“They are really dedicated and love performing live for an audience.”
Sara is also head of voice at the Junior Royal Academy of Music in London.
