It was a fantastic night when our CYS Festival Choir performed on stage at the Adelaide Festival Theatre as part of the Public Primary Schools’ Festival of Music on Tuesday, September 19.
The Primary Schools Festival of Music, an official state icon, is a public school-based music education program which is a collaboration between the Department for Education and the SAPPS Music Society, which gives all SA public primary students the opportunity to perform at a prestigious venue.
The commissioned work was entitled “Dear Pen Pal” which was a series of songs composed by local musician Robyn Habel about Adelaide’s sister cities and having a pen pal. The concert ended with a spectacular sea of colour.
During the concerts there were a number of Guest Artists from public primary and secondary schools, other choir items that presented different musical genre, and two pieces that specifically showcased the talents of the orchestra.
It was a spectacular event that our students enjoyed being a part of.
