Huge congratulations to all pupils in Year 2, 3 and 4 who sang wonderfully in the Kettering and District Eisteddfod today. We entered four classes: Year 2 Hymn Singing, Year 3 and 4 Hymn Singing, Year 2 Open Choir and Year 3 and 4 Open Choice. We were placed first in every class!
The adjudicator was incredibly positive about everyone’s singing, but particularly commented on the Stoneygate Choirs’ diction and rhythmic clarity. This is very pleasing, as we have worked so hard on these things, as well as stage presentation, tone colours and singing with positive energy.
It was also a great opportunity to hear other choirs perform and it was nice to hear one of the pieces that we performed last year. Stoneygate pupils had to sit and wait very patiently between classes, but managed this very well.
Thank you to all the parents who travelled to Kettering to support us. It is lovely to have a home crowd and it means a huge amount to the children.
Mr Ashwin and I have really enjoyed preparing the choirs for this concert and results like this are very encouraging for our young singers. I hope it makes them realise how good they really are!
