We had a superb evening at the SA Music Festival for public primary schools held at the Festival Theatre (one of ten concerts). Somehow, by pure luck we scored the front row with a perfect view in the middle. Honestly, this is a show that should be on TV publicising just what can be achieved by public school children and their wonderful teachers and helpers. There were some really gutsy and exceptionally talented performances, especially by the soloists.
There were also a few “guest” spots from the Brighton High School which is a school that specialises in music. Simply awesome. At short notice, one of their students played a Debussy piece on the Grand Piano. Spine tingling stuff.
From the superb sounding orchestra, which Claire’s best friend, Victoria is in, as well as the dance troupe, which Claire featured prominently, through to the 500 member choir and the gorgeously confident compere. Well done to all.
I sure know who was smiling down on us.
PS The show was crying out for a stills photographer but alas photography was strictly forbidden ... understandable but still, a bit of bummer none the less!
