Music in the Air

Found in: School News | Published on: 17 September 2015

Many a joyful sound was made at yesterday’s 4th annual Junior Choral Fest, hosted by Ellenbrook Christian College.

Students, staff and parents were treated to an energetic 60’s performance by Ellenbrook’s Hairspray Harmonies, before an opening prayer and the National Anthem kicked off the proceedings.

A choir from each of our metropolitan SCEA schools, took turns in performing two chosen items, ranging from modern praise songs, to traditional spiritual melodies, pop ballads and folk songs. A special guest choir from Regent College was also invited to contribute to the event.

Family and friends, as well as students from Ellenbrook Christian College enjoyed the performances and group songs throughout the day. All together over 250 children loved being a part of this event, which not only showcases the talent of our students, it also celebrates the unity and diversity of our SCEA schools.
