As part of the Summer Concert which streamed to parents earlier this week, Prince Henry’s students performed a very unique song. The finale of the concert is called ‘Together Again’ and expertly composed by a member of staff at the school, Mr Lee Fisher.
Mr Fisher asked students for their thoughts, words and messages relating to their experience of lockdown and he used these contributions to form the lyrics to the song ‘Together Again’.
Mr Lee Fisher (Music Tutor and Learning Supervisor) commented,
“I was overwhelmed by many of the emotions expressed as would be expected after such a difficult year, and their words from the students shaped each verse. It was incredible that our students wanted to provide some hope for the future in the song too, which is where the title “Together Again” stemmed from. Our school motto “Great things from small things grow” is very apt during this time as we begin to take small steps back towards normality, and this is incorporated into the uplifting Chorus to give the song a Prince Henry’s identity and also to convey some optimism.
I hope that the song can not only act as a record of how the pandemic has affected our school community, but also show how we have reacted – with resilience and positivity.”
Mr Phill Bullas (Director of Music) was delighted with the final piece and for the students who have had an opportunity to contribute to such an excellent project.
Dr Tony Evans (Headteacher) commented,
“Mr Fisher has created a memorable piece which reflects the difficult experience that we faced during the pandemic. My thanks to Mr Fisher for all the work he has done on this composition, it is truly a wonderful song and gives us hope for the future.”
The school hope that next year they will be able to return to performing in-person at The Henrician, Evesham.
