Let's Sing Junior Choir Competition - A resounding success

District members please log in for more information.


After weeks of planning and hard work put in by Bexhill Rotary’s main organiser Sue Day, the Junior Choir Competition promised to be a spectacular event on Thursday 13 th June and spectacular it certainly was in front of a packed and enthusiastic audience.

With Sue and her Rotary colleague Graham Dawson hosting the evening at the White Rock Pavilion, the proceedings got going at 6.30 with junior choirs singing at a really high standard throughout the evening. This gave the four judges a difficult choice to find a winner, but eventually Battle & Langton Primary School came out tops singing ‘A Thousand Years and Lovely Day’,

they were given the £250 first prize for their school plus a shield and medals for the choir. Runners-up were St. Pauls CE Academy with ‘Wade in the Water and Somewhere Only We Know’, and the choir received a Trophy and Certificates.

Sue Day surprised everybody when she announced that not only was the winning choir to sing with Tenors Unlimited at their concert on 21st November but the runners-up would as well. Tenors Unlimited kindly donated two tickets to the winner of the numbered programmes on sale on the night with the winner being presented with their prize by Bexhill Rotary’s President James Slinn.

During the course of this wonderful evening of top class singing from the various school choirs, the entertainment also included stirring performances from Stagecoach Performing Arts, who sang songs from the musical ‘We Will Rock You’, and the singing Pett Slip Buoys lifeboat crew from Pett.

Sue Day said, “The event ran smoothly and I’ve had amazing feedback.” She added, “One school said they had never been on stage before or even to a theatre but, as a result of this competition, children are queueing up to join the choir as they feel so excited about it. I have also had choirs saying they want to enter next year.”

At the end of the evening, Sue Day was presented with a beautiful bouquet of flowers by Bexhill Rotary’s President James Slinn in recognition of the supreme efforts she had gone to to make the event such a huge success.
