The Music Festival is a fantastic opportunity for the children to perform at an amazing venue in the company of children from other schools and to listen to others perform as well. An adjudicator gives encouraging advice and praise for all aspects of their performance.
The Choir, the Belleplate Team and the Recorder Group have all participated in the Norfolk County Music Festival this week. The Choir sang at St. Andrews Hall along with many other school choirs. The Belleplates and Recorders played at Central Baptist Church where a variety of other instruments were also played.
The adjudicators said:
The choir sang, Hear the Rain and Morningtown Riot. The adjudicator praised their clear and bright splashes and pitter patters. The choir watched their conductor closely and had a nice steady rhythm.They showed good ensemble and some lovely changes of dynamics which keeps the song alive and exciting.
