Fremantle Gazette - - NEWS - Pic­ture: Will Rus­sell

EL­IZ­A­BETH Mather and Sarah Bucchino will sing their way across the coun­try about be­ing se­lected in the Aus­tralian Girls Choir (AGC).

Hamil­ton Hill res­i­dent Sarah (13) said she was ex­cited when she was se­lected for the na­tional tour from June 22 to July 6.

“I feel very priv­i­leged to be per­form­ing with the AGC,” she said.

“I started singing when I was eight years old at school and that’s how it all started.”

The Fre­man­tle College stu­dent said the choir per­formed all mu­si­cal gen­res.

“You never know what music you will get,” she said.

“My favourite genre is pop and that is fun to per­form.”

East Fre­man­tle res­i­dent El­iz­a­beth (14), who has been in the choir since 2013, started singing when she was in Year 2.

“I joined the school choir as soon as I could and par­tic­i­pated in a mass choir fes­ti­val,” she said.

“This is the first time I have been se­lected for the na­tional tour, as I was very young when I joined the choir.”

The Kennedy Bap­tist College stu­dent said she was look­ing for­ward to see­ing dif­fer­ent sites on the tour.

“I am most look­ing for­ward to per­form­ing in the Blue Moun­tains as it is a mag­nif­i­cent place and is very well known,” she said.

“I am also look­ing for­ward to the tour of Par­lia­ment House as Par­lia­ment is sit­ting on that day.”

The tour com­prises girls aged 10 to 16 who will per­form in Can­berra, Nowra, the Blue Moun­tains, Wagga Wagga and Syd­ney. Leah Roberts­mu­ni­ d483528
