Twenty pupils from Years 6 and 7 took part in the annual 'Let’s Sing' Competition at the Hexagon Theatre in Reading recently. The competition is run by the Mayor of Reading and features select choir groups from around the Reading area. With their own backstage dressing room, the girls and boys were thrilled to be taking part in this special event, and although the Crosfields choir did not progress to the final stage of the competition, the reaction from the audience to their singing spoke volumes.
Richard Adams, Director of Music at Crosfields, commented, 'The choir were simply magnificent in their performance of 42nd Street and showed great versatility by singing and moving simultaneously. I have complete admiration for what they have achieved and they should be rightly proud of themselves. The Reading Community Gospel Choir were worthy winners.'
The children also received some very nice feedback from the Arborfield Military Wives Choir and the Music Director of the Aldworth Philharmonic via our Twitter page.
