Humphry Davy School perform 'Lean On Me'

Published at 4:01pm 26th May 2020.

Humphry Davy students and staff have been dusting off their musical instruments, warming up their vocal chords, and creatively showcasing their musical talents - all from their own homes!

Humphry Davy has always focused on the importance of teaching music and are renowned across the county for their excellent musical department, and this hasn't changed despite everyone now learning from home.

'Lean On Me' was chosen as the collaborative piece to illustrate the school community spirit, reflecting how well the students and staff are communicating and supporting one another currently.

In total, 128 people were included with the video. They choose, and recorded, specific segments of the song and then sent it to the music department staff who expertly pieced it together into the final video.

'I am overwhelmed by the number of students and staff that gave their time, energy and talents to participate in this community musical collaboration. The positivity and enthusiasm in which everyone approached this has been truly heartwarming.

Thank you to the music team for making this a possibility and for pulling this ambitious project together. A massive ‘well done’ to everyone involved - I am so proud of the talent and community spirit of our school'.

Amanda Bradley-Metcalf - Director of Music at Humphry Davy

In total, it took those involved two weeks to pull everything together and release the cover, the response to which has been amazing.
