Big Christmas Sing
On Tuesday 26th November, Mrs Salter, Miss Barrett and Mrs Rotherham took the school choir to join with other singers from across Oxfordshire to perform in the impressive surroundings of Oxford Town Hall. After an afternoon rehearsal, the children had a well-earned rest and some refreshments before their big performance. The concert began with a candle-lit parade of children singing ‘Once In Royal David's City’. Chesterton was represented by Caitlin Tingey for this song, as she joined with other school soloists to open the show. During the evening, Chesterton Choir did themselves proud with their own beautiful performance of 'Love Shone Down', accompanied by musicians from the Oxfordshire Music Service. Their singing was very impressive and they were given a well-deserved rapturous applause. Later in the concert, all of the choirs joined together to sing excellent renditions of the well-known 'Feliz Navidad', along with a new Christmas song: 'Shepherd Boy'. Chesterton was very ably represented again by Kit Carry and Honour Woodrow, as they sang the descant part in 'O Come All Ye Faithful'. Another highlight of the evening was an appearance by Mrs Rotherham representing '11 Pipers Piping' during the song: '12 Days Of Christmas'. The festive evening was very enjoyable and certainly left the audience with a smile on their faces. All our choristers should be very proud of themselves. Their singing and behaviour was excellent throughout the entire afternoon and evening.
