Barkly Highway State School Choir - Eisteddfod Performance

Congratulations to the year 3&4 and the year 5&6 choir students who took part in the Mount Isa 2015 Eisteddfod. Both choirs were awarded second place!
The Barkly Highway State School intermediate choir performed at 1:00pm on Monday 18 May singing the set piece “ Si, Si, Si, Dolada”, a cheerful traditional Congolese canon and as their free selection piece, an all-time classic made famous by the great Louis Armstrong, “Wonderful World” (Music and Lyrics by George David Weiss and Bob Thiele).
The senior choir performed that same evening at 7:00pm. The set song was a piece entitled “Amani Utupe” by Patsy Ford Simms, an uplifting bilingual English and Swahili song and as their free choice song, they performed a popular song by Justice Crew “Que Sera”. It was a fantastic experience for all and I commend our students for their exemplary behaviour and professionalism. WELL DONE!
Congratulations also to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School choir for taking out first place with their awesome choirs.
