On Friday August 17th, 48 of our Junior Choir students attended the 2018 One Big Voice Festival at Perth Arena. The thrill and excitement in the air could be felt as soon as we departed school early in the morning.
Once we arrived at the Arena, we commenced our final rehearsal with 2000 other primary school choirs. The sound of all our voices singing together was absolutely amazing. All of the choirs involved have been working on these 11 songs since March. We sang:
One Big Voice
Child of this World
Skye Boat Song
Tomorrow Needs Us
This is Me
Our favourite songs were Smile, Skye Boat Song, We Celebrate and the top hit from The Greatest Showman “This is Me”.
Many thanks to all of our families for supporting this wonderful event and for coming along to watch us. Many thanks also goes to Nicole (Lucinda’s Mum) and Foulk Sensei for their help and support on the day.
Lastly, well done and congratulations to all of our Junior Choir students who performed so brilliantly. You can be very proud of all the hard work and dedication you invested into learning our huge repertoire of songs. “Keep singing your little hearts out kids!”
