The Eyre Peninsula Choir Festival held at the Nautilus Theatre at the end of August was considered a great success.

More than 200 children performed over the two nights with big audiences on both nights.

The Festival of Music programme, which was performed by year 5, 6 and 7 students, involved six schools from across the region coming together to sing.

The 16 song programme featured the world premiere of the Commissioned work – “Mission Possible” which was written especially for the Festival of Music.

The choir was supported by a group of dancers from the Port Lincoln High School with the work choreographed by students Kahlila Murray, Abby Hodgkiss, Shae Ivey, Abby Kroemer and Year 12, Stage 2 Creative Arts - Dance Student Jairah Mendoza .

The choir was also supported by talented young musicians, Yemaya Coleman-Smith, Kaya Huntley and Tasha Jordinson.

The Port Lincoln Primary Year 3 and 4 choirs also featured.

It was great to also have the House of Creative Learning Choirs involved.

Thirty students from Port Lincoln Primary School and a Regional group from Lock Area School, Kimba Area School and Poonindie Learning Centre last week travelled to Adelaide to perform at the Adelaide Festival Theatre.

The students joined public school students from across the state to perform this year’s repertoire as part of the Festival of Music Adelaide performances.

The children are extremely excited to be performing at such a big venue with an orchestra and dance troupes.

Many families also travelled to be part of this experience.
