Performing at the Royal Albert Hall

Congratulations to our 11 pupils selected to join singers from across the country to champion their climate change message during an exceptional performance at the Royal Albert Hall.

George, Lowenna, Harry, Georgia and Archie from Year 5, Gabriel from Year 6, and Elsie, Lily, Imogen H, Oriana and Imogen D from the Senior School, travelled to London over the half term to address climate issues at the Music for Youth’s Remix Prom 2021.

Whilst championing their home county, the singers gave a performance about sea pollution and climate change to Coldplay’s hit song, Fix You. The band’s lead singer, Chris Martin sent a video message of support for the performance and the choir’s acts of climate protection.

Director of Cornwall County Choirs, Angela Renshaw says: “This is set to be our most memorable performance yet. Cornwall is our home, and these young people are passionate about protecting it and ensuring that it remains a beautiful county for future generations to come. This performance will share the thoughts of our singers, and it is a celebration of the local people making a difference for our climate and our community in Cornwall.”

On their return, Lily and Imogen joined Angela for an interview with BBC Spotlight, which was broadcast on Friday evening.

Costumes for the concert were made from recycled objects and beach junk by Truro School parent and local artist Jose McDonald, including plastic bottles, shells, and netting supplied by Beach Guardian, a Community Interest Company based in Cornwall, and Heathcoats in Devon.
