stu­dent choir made beau­ti­ful mu­sic when they took to the stage in a grand con­cert per­for­mance at Wil­lows State School re­cently.

The mass choir, in­volv­ing the cream- of- the­crop Year 5 and 6 choir singers from state schools across Townsville, learnt all the mu­sic for their per­for­mance dur­ing an in­ten­sive four- day work­shop with Aus­tralian Chil­dren’s Con­duc­tor Anne O’Re­gan.

Stu­dents from Blue­wa­ter State School, Cur­ra­jong State School, Townsville Cen­tral State School, Bel­gian Gar­dens State School, Her­mit Park State School, An­nan­dale State School, Wul­guru State School, Weir State School, Cran­brook State School, Rail­way Es­tate State School and Townsville West State School par­tic­i­pated in the fi­nal show­case per­for­mance.

Blue­wa­ter State School teacher Peta Dew said it was a rare op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal choir stu­dents to per­form on stage. “The ben­e­fit of the Choral Work­shop is that only the best 10 choir stu­dents in Years 5 and 6 from each state school can at­tend,” she said.

“This means that the choir is made up of the cream of the crop choir singers from all over Townsville.

“The qual­ity of sound that the stu­dents get to hear, and fo­cus and ded­i­ca­tion they get to ex­pe­ri­ence from the whole choir, is sec­ond to none.”
