The thirty children who make up Marsden School Choir, taken from years’ 3,4,5 and 6 in the school, took part in the Junior Music Festival at the Customs House in South Shields on Monday evening.
For their solo item in the festival, the children sang a French song, ‘Caresse sur l’ocean’ that ‘wowed’ the audience with purity of their voices.
Some of the characters in the musical play that made up the second half of the evening were played by children from Marsden School. Notably, Noah Lane, Tom Munton and Bradley Coltman who were the three official debt collectors- ‘The Bills’ and RubyBurgess who was the wrestling commentator. Ruby managed a human wrestling ring made up of rope-holders: Emily Davison, Ebany Cunningham, Elizabeth Moore and Melissa Muruni.
The audience responded very well to the wonderful singing and acting from all of the children in the festival, which this year was of a very high standard indeed. Well done to all who took part.
