Glasgow Music Festival

Braidwood Primary School Choir at the Glasgow Music Festival March 2014 - Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow
On Tuesday 11th March, our choir headed into Glasgow to perform on stage in the Royal Concert Hall in the Hymn Singing Competition. The choir have worked extremely hard learning words and parts for this event.

The choir performed beautifully. Their two pieces sounded wonderful.

Although not placed in the top 3, they received 85% from the judges on the day, with some really encouraging comments.

They are WINNERS in our eyes. WELL DONE.

Thanks to Mrs Robertson for playing the piano for us and arranging the pieces and to Mrs Hewitt for all of her help.
Our choir would be much poorer if it were not for their help.
