There were lots of highs for our Foresters at this year’s Alderley Edge Festival of Music. They brought home numerous awards, including 5 first places.
We scooped first place in the Main Choir, Chamber Choir Year 5 Vocal Solo, Year 3 Grade 2 Piano Solo and Year 1 Grade 2 Piano solo categories.
Second and third places were also picked up in the following solo categories Year 6 Vocal, Year 5 Grade 2 Piano, Year 4 Piano, and Year 2 Grade 1 Piano.
Ms Wellings, Music Director said, “This is the first time our choirs have been awarded first place, so I am immensely proud. It is very well-deserved and is testament to the many hours of rehearsals the children put in.”
