Youngsters perform at Symphony Hall ...

A PRIMARY school choir has been selected to perform at one of the UK’s most prestigious concert halls.

St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Thame were invited to perform at the Oxfordshire Music Service’s Grand Spring Concert at the Birmingham Symphony Hall on Monday, March 19.

Joining the Oxfordshire Primaries Massed Choir, St Joseph’s choral group took part in a performance of Oxonia – a choral work composed by John Traill, director of music, St Anne’s College, and lecturer at St Catherine’s College, Oxford.

The choir took part in the first performance of this piece at the Royal Albert Hall last November.

Claire Kerr, headteacher at St Joseph’s Primary School, said: “This was an amazing opportunity for our pupils to perform at this venue, considered by many to be one of the finest concert halls in Europe.”

The concert involved many Oxfordshire music groups including the Oxfordshire Youth Big Bands, The Oxfordshire Schools’ Symphony Orchestra, The Oxfordshire Youth Chamber Choir and the Oxfordshire Youth Wind Band.
