Walking in the Air

Last week Birkdale Prep School were delighted to be visited by Mr Morton, conductor of The Sheffield Rep Orchestra.


Mr Morton paid a special visit to audition students from the Prep School choir for the opportunity to sing the famous ‘Walking in the Air’ song (from the Snowman), as he had heard about the high quality of their singing.

Many congratulations go to Seth Hillier who was successfully selected as a soloist to sing ‘Walking in the Air’ with the Rep Orchestra. The Orchestra will be accompanying a live screening of The Snowman at the beautiful Firth Hall on Saturday 19 December and Seth will be the soloist for a number of concerts.

Mr Morton commented that the standard of entries at Birkdale was very high and he was grateful to all boys who auditioned for giving their time to rehearse and audition for the role.
