Video featuring 'Flash Mob' Music Week singalong goes viral

The video of a special lunchtime sing-along at Rydal Penrhos has gone viral.

As part of the school’s Music Week initiative, department director Pete Williams and other staff performed an impromptu version of the James Bay smash hit Hold Back the River, which saw pupils also stand up and join in.

The ‘Flash Mob’ video has gathered a staggering amount of interest on social media, with almost 7,000 viewing the scene in less than 24 hours on Rydal Penrhos’ Facebook page, while it was also provoked an extremely positive response on Twitter.


It was the latest in an extremely busy day for music lovers at the school, with saxophone star Sam Jones performing a series of solo hits in the Memorial Quad during morning break.

The evening saw a plethora of pupils take the stage for the annual Summer Concert, which was held in-front of a packed out audience at the Ferguson Centre.

Mr Williams, said: “Both staff and pupils have really embraced Music Week, and I would like to thank them all for their wonderful contributions.

“It is a busy time of year for everyone at Rydal Penrhos as we begin exam season, but they have all selflessly given up their time to contribute, and it has been a roaring success once again.”
