It was a busy festive period for the Larks choir of Gorsley Goffs Primary with several events in the lead up to Christmas.

The choir were joint winners of the sunshine Radio Christmas song competition and were very excited to be invited to sing at the Hereford Christmas Light Switch on, on November 17th and win a cheque for £100.

On November 28th the KS2 ‘Larks’ choir joined twelve other choirs for a truly amazing experience at the Hereford Cathedral School combined children’s Advent carol service where they sang a selection of carols, the Hallelujah chorus, the Angel’s carol and performed their winning Christmas competition song ‘That’s Christmas to Me’.

Three children from Year 6 also delivered the junior school’s reading: ‘The Cratchit Christmas Dinner’ from ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens, doing a fantastic job reading clearly and with great expression.

Larks’ next engagement was to entertain the senior citizen’s ‘Beehive’ group at the Gorsley chapel on December 4th alongside the school and solo instrumentalists from years 4, 5 and 6, before December 5th saw them singing a new set of songs for the school Christmas bazaar.

The final event of 2019 was to open the school’s own Christmas service at the chapel.

Mrs Abbot, who leads the choir, would like to thank the children for the high level of commitment, hard work and standard of performance and looks forward to making the most of more singing opportunities throughout 2020.See this week’s paper for more stories like this, available in shops and as a";>Digital Edition now.
