Festival gives the mu­sic to masses

Cockburn Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

STU­DENTS from seven pri­mary schools will take part in a mas­sive mu­sic event in Atwell on Thurs­day which the pub­lic can at­tend for a gold coin do­na­tion.

Suc­cess Pri­mary School mu­sic spe­cial­ist Jenny Gaunt said the aim of the in­au­gu­ral Cock­burn Choral Festival, to be held at Atwell Pri­mary School, was to cre­ate an event with 100 per cent par­tic­i­pa­tion.

“It will in­volve schools per­form­ing for each other and along­side each other in a massed choir,” she said.

“It will also fea­ture the Mu­sic: Count Us In song, Let It Play, which is a na­tional cel­e­bra­tion run by Mu­sic Aus­tralia to pro­mote the value of mu­sic ed­u­ca­tion in schools.”

Atwell, Aubin Grove, Beel­iar, Ham­mond Park, Har­mony, Jan­dakot and Suc­cess PS stu­dents will per­form from 9.30am-11.30am.
