Cockburn Music Festival 2019

Choir Photo 2This years Cockburn Music Festival was on Thursday 7th November 2019 at Aubin Grove Primary School. Students from Hammond Park, Aubin Grove, Atwell, Honeywood, Coogee, Beeliar, Success and Harmony Primary Schools attended and treated us to a Choral Extravaganza. Our brilliant Choristers sang a song called Take These Wings by Steve Kupferschmid and Don Besig. Elieza Ross, Thilina Kariyawasam and Kyla Lindon sang solos in the piece and the choir sang magnificently in two parts. Grateful thanks to Keisha Klassen who accompanied the choir on piano and our flute teacher Mrs Erryn Booth (also a parent at the school) for playing the flute obligato throughout the song. This combination of instruments really made for a special performance. Grateful thanks also to Mr Doherty and Mr Jones and all parents and staff for their unwavering support. This is a wonderful occasion and provides a great performance platform for our students to experience and excel.

So proud of our choir.

Thank you.

Massed Choir Cluster Rehearsal

Image-6On the 17th of September our wonderful school choir attended the second Cluster Rehearsal for the Massed Choir.  What great excitement to see the students on stage at the Concert Hall.

There are 500 students on stage for the concert and our school choir will be in the middle this year.  It was a long day, but well worth it.  Thank you to Mr Jones for supporting us, we are looking forward to our performance on Thursday 19th September.

Congratulations Atwell Primary School Choir, you do us proud!

One of our fabulous Choir Captains, Kelse Carter, accepted the Participation Certificate on behalf of us all.




Massed Choir 2019

Image-3Today Atwell Primary School Choir attended the first Cluster rehearsal for the Massed Choir 2019.  The final performance will be Thursday 19th September at 7.30pm.  During Terms 2 and 3 the children have learnt 10 songs, a whole lot of choralography and have been very focused and committed.  Students were given a CD to aid in learning the songs.  I have been very impressed by the efforts of all students to learn the repertoire.

In the weeks before the concert we will be working on polishing up the songs, ready for the performance.

I would like to give a great big thank you to Isobel McArthur who attended the Churchlands Cluster rehearsal after having major surgery on her knee last week.  All students are wonderful stars and I think Isobel and her family certainly should have extra accolades for their efforts.

Tickets are still on sale through the Concert Hall website. If there are none available online, call the Concert Hall direct.

Grateful thanks to parents and teachers for the support of this program.

Best wishes,
