SYDNEY EISTEDDFOD - CANTABILE
Congratulations to the 28 students in Cantabile (Years 3 and 4) who competed in the Sydney Eisteddfod on Saturday 20 May at Chatswood. Although the choir had 10 girls absent, the group performed beautifully and placed third with a score of 85%. Adjudicator, Luke Byrne, commented that he enjoyed the lovely in tune singing and the styles and personality that were portrayed in their two songs - The Moon and The Bare Necessities.
Thank you to all the parents who transported their daughters and came to support. Thank you also to Mrs Smyth, Mrs Watters and Ms Shearer who came to support these young singers. Thank you to Ms Clouston for directing the group and to Ms Hamilton for accompanying the choir.
SCOTS COLLEGE CHORAL SHOWCASE
On Monday 5 June, 32 girls from Chamber Choir and the Madrigal Group travelled to Scots to perform with the Scots choirs. The girls performed three of their own items and combined in two pieces including Viva La Vida and the finale Hey Jude. Thank you to the parents who attended and collected their daughters after the event. This concert was a good chance for our PLC Sydney choristers to support our brother school and to also air some of their own pieces before the Annual Music Festival and the up and coming Chamber Choir tour to CHORALFEST in Queensland in the July holidays. Thank you to Ms Clouston and Mr Basile for directing and accompanying the choirs.
