HPO Songbirds


HPO Songbirds is a Children's Choir founded by Marcio da Silva in June 2021 with support from the Lottery Community Fund. Originally the choir numbered just ten children, but numbers are growing every term.

The choir rehearses on THURSDAYS from 4.25pm to 5.25pm at Christ Church St Leonards, and is open to children aged 7-13. Participation is free of charge.

During rehearsals children are coached in secure vocal technique and are taught the basic principles of reading music in a fun and relaxed environment.

HPO Songbirds are proud to present regular informal showcase concerts. During these concerts the children perform the new songs they have learned. These songs are challenging, varied, and interesting, and they often involve simple two-part harmony and rounds, as well as actions to develop musical awareness and rhythm.

​In the showcase concerts the children also have the opportunity to share piano pieces, or solo instrumental and vocal items with piano accompaniment if they wish. These performance opportunities help to build confidence and develop musicality.

HPO Songbirds also have the exciting challenge of joining larger more formal concerts with the talented young professional musicians of Hastings Philharmonic Orchestra and with the Hastings Philharmonic Choir. The HPO Songbirds most recent performance was on Saturday, December 18th, 2021, when they performed individual items and participated in the sold-out HPO Christmas Gala Concert. Marcio plans future exciting activities, including participation in opera projects.
