Choirs in harmony

Friday, December 28, 2012 - 10:12

MUSICYOUNG and old joined forces for a wonderful Christmas concert in front of more than 250 people at All Saints’ School, Freshwater.
The school choir was backed by the Medina Community Choir singing favourite carols, including Winter Wonderland and Away in a Manger.
Musical director Hannah Brear, who teaches languages at Medina College and French and music at All Saints, said: "It was the first time the two choirs had sung together and they had no rehearsals in the build-up, so they were all fantastic.
"It was a lovely occasion. The children at All Saints are very talented and can achieve things some of the adults can’t.
"At one point in the production they were singing a five-bar harmony, which is terribly difficult to do."
Hannah, who started the 120-strong Medina Community Choir in 2006 with just six members, added: "The school has been working on this since September so it was a fantastic return for all the children’s effort."
Europe, Asia and Americas classes also joined in the performance during the evening.
Narrators were Joseph Barnes, Francesca Toyne and Trudi Boynes.
