On Friday 25th May, the Senior Choir were assessed by Lisa Johnson from the Festival of Music Team. Every choir involved in the Festival are assessed and given a grade. The choir worked hard to prepare for this assessment. They had to sing 4 songs from memory. The choir received an ‘A’ Grade. Comments from Lisa included – “A wonderful sound Unley! Great energy and accuracy throughout.” The assessment included how the choir presented themselves, their accuracy in pitch and rhythm, their part singing, memory, diction, tone quality, dynamics and expression and how they understand the context of what they are singing about. As choir teacher, a highlight of my week is working with these 40 year 6/7 students who share a genuine love for singing. I am very proud of their achievements so far.
