AN AMERICAN choir visited a town school this week.

A 12-strong choir from the Berkeley Preparatory School in Tampa, Florida, sang at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Thame on Monday, March 26.

As part of their UK tour, the American choir performed some of their favourite numbers to the delighted St Joseph’s schoolchildren.

In return, St Joseph’s 20-strong school choir sang a song from ‘Zimbe’, a fusion of traditional African song and jazz.

The whole school was there to see both performances and to join in with some ‘community singing’.

Claire Kerr, headteacher at St Joseph’s, said: “We are very proud of our school choir, they have performed in both local and national events. It is great to have this opportunity to welcome another choir.”
