American singer Caroline Polachek is forging a strong reputation for her versatile singing style, imaginative songs and creative presentation. Last week she performed at London’s famous Roundhouse in a concert that sold out in an hour.
She first visited Trinity last year to record music for an art installation by artist Matt Copson in Paris. She visited again to record her new song ‘Billions’ with members of both the Boys’ and the Girls’ Choirs – and Trinity musicians were also fortunate to benefit from her advice during a guest talk on Zoom during the first lockdown.
Caroline invited the school to provide a choir to sing in the final two numbers of her Roundhouse show and five Trinity girls were available over half term to take up the challenge: Abbie Daly, Maia Evans, Eliza Farrar, Ekaterina Ivanova.
Mr Swinson, our Director of Music, was fortunate to be able to complete the choir by calling on singers from Clapham and Streatham High School for Girls and his own external girls’ choir.
The concert has received rave reviews and NME (New Musical Express) calls out the ‘magical’ contribution of the girls.
Well done to all involved.
