As the Cabinet Member for Leisure and Community Services, I would like to congratulate all the participants and organisers of the Redbridge Schools Choral Festival 2014 at the Royal Albert Hall "Hopes and Dreams".


It was a magnificent concert. The selection and variety of the pieces presented was so well thought out. The performances of the singers and musicians was of an incredibly high standard. The use of the overhead screens to show some of the excellent art work from children at a selection of schools to fit in with the songs was imaginative. The way that the screens were also used to interpret and emphasise the messages that the songs and music were conveying was so moving and so original. Eric you and your staff must be so proud of what was achieved by so many people at the festival. My thanks and appreciation to everyone involved, be it young people, choirs, musicians, staff, technicians, parents the friends and everyone that played their part in the production of such a memorable evening in an incredible venue. I must not forget Vivyan Ellacott for his professional and articulate compering. What a fantastic display of talent from Redbridge Music School was on display for all to enjoy and be proud of, be it a participant or the audience. Thank you to you all for a night I shall remember for a long time. My very best wishes and congratulations to you all for bringing such enjoyment to so many people.
