The Junior Choir performed an intensive repertoire for the Tauranga Primary Schools Music Festival on Monday 3 September at Baycourt Theatre. The theme of the festival this year was ‘It’s About Time’, so their repertoire included songs about time, such as ‘Time After Time’ and ‘Seasons of Love’. These songs were performed in a mass choir with six other choirs from primary schools around Tauranga, so the sound was impressive!
The Junior Choir put in many hours of rehearsal in the months leading up to the event and their hard work definitely paid off. The Queen classic ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ was enthusiastically performed as the choir’s individual item and was well received by the audience. Miss Fahy directed the choir and Mrs Cooney accompanied them on the piano.
Year 8 students Charlotte Mitchell and Anna Tustin featured as soloists in several items and did themselves and the school proud. Also worthy of special mention were Zoe Sherlock (Year 7) and Chloe Hawes (Year 8), who were MCs for the evening, as well as performing in the choir. A huge congratulations to all who were involved!
