The Beacon choir perform at the KSENT AGM

On Friday 29th September the Beacon choir had their first official engagement of the year. They were invited to perform as part of the KSENT choir, Ksenphony, at the KSENT AGM. The choir performed to a high standard and impressed all of those in attendance. The students were completely unfazed to singing to such a collective of Head teachers and Governors from all the special needs school across Kent. Their first number, Roar by Katy Perry, was performed with such aplomb it eased them into the foot tapping number, Happy by Pharrell Williams. The students even got a standing ovation from several, if not all, of those in attendance. I am extremely proud of them and relish all of the performance opportunities that are coming throughout the school year. Well done everyone!
