Youngsters hit the right notes
Published: 26 Jan 2012 13:30
A day of vocal solo classes and singing games for pupils from primary one and two provided one of the highlights of the festival thus far.
Teams of P1 tots kicked off the day as they performed in groups for the Patricia Williamson Trophy, before their P2 counterparts did the same for the coveted Brisbane Trophy.
Older children from primary classes five, six and under won praise from the adjudicators in the afternoon for their solo performances, as they competed for the Cecilia Campbell Memorial Trophy and the LC Calder Trophy.
The songs from musicals and Disney films section was contested by talented youngsters from Gourock and Greenock, all aged 10 and under.
The evening classes were also of an exceptional standard, with more vocal solos for older children, 12 and under and under-14s.
Fittingly the evening was closed by a solo section of Burns' songs, as girls aged 14 and below competed for the Victoria Burns Club Trophy.
Parents, friends and family, as well as judges, praised another day of enjoyable high quality performances, with more note perfect displays expected as the festival continues today.
