Rehearsals with all the choirs got off to a great start last night!

We started the amazing and rewarding rehearsals with Apprentice Choir singing such a beautiful tone, then Advanced Choir proving that they are able to learn fast and do more difficult music, and finally, with Concert Choir even bringing tears to the eyes of parents as they sang, My Hearts in the Highlands! Premier Singers gained two very good members, and smoked the sight-reading rehearsal!

We are so excited about this term!
