Over the Rainbow and Clap for Carers

  • Post Category:Music


It is now a Thursday lockdown tradition! Alongside the 8pm #ClapForOurCarers, UK musicians are playing and singing ‘Over the Rainbow’ from their doorways and driveways after the one minute clap. Thank you to all of those who took part last week, we have been delighted to see so many photos and videos of you taking part from home.

If you’d like to add your performance to our ‘Over the Rainbow’ blog page, please film your performance and either share your video to the St Mary’s Calne Facebook page or, for girls and staff, by using the Teams sharepoint and we will upload it. Thank you for showing your support for this very worthwhile campaign!

Professional opera singer, Neal Davies, baritone, and supporter of St Mary’s and the NHS has joined in with us!  Neal has sung with Chamber Choir and Opera Ensemble in the past and he also adjudicated the Company Shout one year! He should be performing in Japan now but instead he joins us for Over the Rainbow from his Somerset home!  What a treat!  What a star!
