Battle of the choirs
Nine community and school choirs will be singing in the Equator choir competition tomorrow (Friday) night.
Choirs from Great Chart Primary School and Highworth Grammar School will be competing against seven others at St Mary’s Parish Church in Ashford town centre from 7pm.
The event, organised by the Equator Festival Music Series and Kent Music, will feature special guest performer Bethany Terry, the winner of an EquatorShivanova event last year.
The year 8 pupil from Highworth is a singer-songwriter, and will perform while the judges are deliberating.
This year’s judging panel comprises musicians from all over the county, including composer Paul Patterson, choral tutors from Kent Music and members of Equator and Shivanova.
Children and families are welcome to attend. Tickets are £7 or £4 with concessions.
