The Kingswells After School Choir led by Morag Simpson took part in 2 concerts at the Music Hall. The first concert, Around the World in Music, was on Sunday 1st March and was organised by the Westhill and District Rotary Club. The second concert was on Saturday 21st March and was part of the Aberdeen Music Centre Concerts.
At the first concert, there were a lot of other performers including the Westhill Ceilidh Band, the Morven Singers and Hazlewood School Choir. Our school choir joined with the choirs from other primary schools and performed 6 songs. Sophie Deans from our Kingswells choir sung beautifully in her vocal duet “The Rattlin Bog”.
At the Music Centre Concert, Kingswells joned with other schools again to sing a selection of pieces. The Aberdeen City Youth Orchestra, Coro Piccolo and a brass and wind band also were part of the concert.
The Music Hall is due to close for refurbishment so it was a good opportunity for us to perform on the stage before it closes for 18 months. It is scheduled to re-open in November 2017.
