The weeks of after-school rehearsals have paid off as Walton Chamber Choir have achieved first place at Grantham Music Festival.
The students sang two original arrangements of Electricity from the Musical Billy Elliot and All Of Me by John Legend.
The arrangements were composed by Mr Roberts and required the students to sing in three-part harmony.
The adjudicator was very complimentary, describing their singing as a ‘lovely and beautiful tone’, in his comments.
He also wrote how the choir had ‘excellent diction’ and a great balance between the parts.
Walton Girls Assistant Principal, Mrs Leonard Smith, said: “The students were a real credit to the Academy from the moment they walked into the venue at Finkin Street to the moment they returned to school.”
