Kingston Festival of Primary School Choirs
Our dedicated choir took part in the final night of three concerts at The Rose Theatre for Primary School Choirs on Wednesday 18th June. The theme for the festival was Folk Music and St Agatha’s joined 6 other Kingston Primary School choirs on stage and in front of a large audience.
The concert began with a ‘massed’ singing of Wade in the Water followed by Scarborough Fair.
St Agatha’s then led the individual performances with their chosen folk songs, The Star of the County Down, a two part arrangement of Bonny Mary of Argyle and finally a lively two part arrangement by Crocker of The Drunken Sailor.
Following the individual performances, the evening ended with all choirs singing Linden Lea, a new arrangement of The Skye Boat Song and the audience joining in with I’m Gonna Sing/Swing Low/Oh when the Saints.
It was a wonderful evening and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
