Praises sung over chamber choir's festival performance

CHORISTERS from Stratford Girls Grammar School (SGSS) hit the right note with arts festival judges.

The school Chamber Choir recently achieved outstanding awards at Dudley’s Festival or Music, Drama and Dance.

The choir groups received marks of 90 and 92 – a rare event which saw the class praised for its ‘drive and energy’ with a ‘hugely polished and effective programme’.

An adjudicator described a rendition of Tavener’s ‘The Lamb’ as ‘perfect, with a beautiful, blended sound and sense of stillness’ among other praise for their energy, vibrancy, rhythm and harmony.

They also commented on how communicative the choir were, and the feeling of them being a real team.

Student Danielle said: “I was so proud of the choir, we’d been practising and working hard and it was a great feeling to see it pay off!

“We love performing and competing and we’re very lucky to have a teacher who is willing to put in so much time and effort into making it all possible.”

Headteacher Mrs Cornell added: “We are delighted that enrichment activities are once again open to students at SGGS.

“A brilliant result for our chamber choir, who we are immensely proud of. Well done to the choir and also to the music department for all their work behind the scenes!”
