Our Head of Choir, Mr. John Durant, has given our choir the privilege of performing at two prestigious events which inaugurate the Christmas season in Seville: the Opening Ceremony of the Three Kings Parade and the Presentation of the Christmas Poster and Opening Ceremony.
At Yago School, we have relaunched the choir’s activity after a difficult year due to Covid. The choir has added two more events to its years of success always linked to the musical activities going on in our city.
In this sense, last Monday a group of students from the Primary 5 and Primary 6 choir performed at the famous Three Kings Parade Opening Ceremony, organized by the prestigious Ateneo de Sevilla in a privileged place, the Lope de Vega Theater. The opening speech was given by Rafa Almarcha, our Head of Productions & Recording Arts and the school choir sang under the baton of our Head of Choir, Mr. John Durant.
As the newspaper ABC de Sevilla comments, “In addition to the members and musicians of “Siempre Así”, Rafael Almarcha was accompanied by artists of the stature of José Manuel Soto and the Yago School Choir, who received great applause”.
The choir also participated in the Presentation of the Christmas Poster and Proclamation of Christmas in Seville organised by the Association of Nativity Scenes last Saturday in the Sala Chicarreros – Theatre of the Cajasol Foundation.
Our Choir is already a reference in our city and as well as performing on several occasions with the Royal Symphonic Orchestra of Seville, the Teatro de la Maestranza, FIBES Palace of Exhibitions and Congresses; they even offered a concert to the Pope in the Vatican, one of the most important milestones in the history of our choir. The Choir has also a CD edited and recorded in the school’s recording studio.
Music plays an essential role in the educational project at Yago School because it has been scientifically proven that music produces positive effects in the brain which promote certain linguistic circuits that facilitate the correct acquisition of new languages.
We couldn’t be prouder of our choir’s newest successes!
