SCS singers and jazz musicians join forces with Pudsey

There was much excitement and anticipation at Salisbury Arts Centre last Friday afternoon as 200 children from six schools in the Salisbury area rehearsed for a live performance on BBC One’s Children in Need programme that evening. Salisbury Cathedral School’s Musical Director, Ian Wicks, conducted the 200-strong choir singing 'Lean on Me', part of a national effort comprising 1,500 children in all.

Salisbury Cathedral School’s Seraphim Choir (whose members are pupils in Years 6, 7 and 8) sang as part of the live national performance. 

Speaking afterwards, Mr Wicks said, 'Children’s voices melt people’s hearts and the powerful message of the song ‘Lean on Me’ is that no one needs to be alone in this world – there is always someone who can help you. I know that their singing will have raised millions of pounds to help Children in Need and I am very proud of every child who took part in Pudsey’s choir.'

Jazbytes – the School’s brilliant jazz band – also took part in the evening, performing at the end of South Today. They played Peanut Vendor, featuring drums and solo trumpeter, and played with great energy and precision.

All the children involved were thrilled to be part of the massively popular BBC fundraising show, whose stellar line-up of presenters included Tess Daly, Graham Norton, Greg James, Ade Adepitan, Rochelle and Marvin Humes. (And our Head Master, Clive Marriott, was delighted to meet – and be photographed with – Pudsey!) The programme offered a night of dazzling entertainment and raised millions of pounds for BBC Children in Need.
