APPA Choir success

This busy August has finally ended and we scored another little victory yesterday:

The Junior Choir took part in the first full-size rehearsal for the Auckland Primary Principals’ Association Festival at Remuera Intermediate.

Our 25 singers joined a mass choir of almost 500 students from all over Auckland for the first full run-through of their concert, which is to take place at the Town Hall on the evening of 23 November.

Our young musicians continue to do Sancta Maria College proud. Jade Pereira (who is situated at the very front of the picture) successfully auditioned for a solo part – she has been selected to be one of the soloists when the National Anthem is performed.

All of our singers were very much on song, working through a hugely varied set that includes songs such as Bohemian Rhapsody, Mary Did You Know and You’ll Never Walk Alone. We have just two more major rehearsals before the big night in November.
