St Agatha's sings at the Rose Theatre
St Agatha’s brings Broadway to The Rose Theatre.
Our wonderful choir were on stage at The Rose Theatre on Tuesday 9th June for the second night of The Kingston Festival of Primary School Choirs.
The festival featured nineteen choirs over three nights and was the culmination of months of practising. This year the theme was jazz and the programme included four songs by the composer Pete Churchill, who visited St Agatha’s for a ‘cluster’ rehearsal in May.
On Tuesday, the choir spent the afternoon singing with children from six other primary schools under the direction of Mr Churchill, getting ready for the evening concert. There was great excitement as the doors opened for family and friends at 6pm.
The programme began with all choirs on stage singing two songs by our guest conductor and featured solos by Bryce and Jessica. St Agatha’s began the individual performances with an arrangement of Lewis Carroll’s ‘How doth the little crocodile’ followed by the Broadway classic 42nd Street featuring our talented tappers Emily, Anna and Liliana.
The evening was a great success and after all the individual performances the concert concluded with all choirs on stage for the finale led once again by Mr Churchill. Well done St Agatha’s. Once again you delighted us with another outstanding performance.
