Having come through the preliminary round on 16th May, they produced an even better performance in the final on 20th May to beat off some very stiff competition from three other schools, some with older pupils.
The girls were commended by the judges for their excellent posture, clear diction and the quality of their communication and engagement. They appeared thoroughly involved in the characterisation of their songs with a strong sense of narrative, powerfully expressing emotion and singing some challenging harmonies at times.
The girls have been working towards this result for six months and it was wonderful to see them rewarded for their team work and dedication. They were an absolute credit to the school and the fabulous, silver cup will bear testimony to this throughout their years at St Mary’s Calne.
